Who are we?

Previous years

In 1993 fifteen Ph.D. programs have been founded at the University, they were then re-organized and re-accredited as Doctoral (PhD) Schools in 2002. Nowadays seven Ph.D. schools are in service at the Szent István University.

The management

The Office of Doctoral and Habilitation Council of the Szent István University, Gödöllő is responsible for the administrative management and organizing the defense procedure for the students.

The doctoral degree

awarded by the Szent István University, Gödöllő, Hungary is an internationally recognized Ph.D degree. Our professional staff enjoys a high reputation all over the world. The Ph.D. students graduated at the University find employment in government offices, research institutions, business and educational positions, both in this country and abroad.

You won't be disappointed

The PhD studies comprise tutorial classes, field and laboratory experimental work, as well as preparation and defense of theses. Degrees are awarded in seven scientific areas, including

  • Agricultural Engineering
  • Animal Husbandry
    • Biological Sciences
      • Environmental Sciences
        • Management and Business Studies
        • Plant- and Horticultural Sciences
          • Veterinary Sciences

Who can come?

We respect a good degree.

That's why all graduates of accredited non-Hungarian universities with a M.Sc. or internationally recognized equivalent qualification are eligible for admission to our Ph.D. schools.

Communication is the key

to educational success, and thus, any foreign or Hungarian post-graduate student studying at the Szent István University is required to have proficient written and spoken foreign language skills preferably in English, but in a few cases, German or French will do as well.



If you're a full-time post-graduate student,

the length of time you'll spend in a full-time post-graduate course at the SZENT ISTVÁN UNIVERSITY, GÖDÖLLŐ is three years to complete courses and the experimental work, and another year might be needed for preparing the thesis.

Full-time international students

pay tuition fees between 7,000 and 10,000 EUROs per year. The exact amount of payment depends on the research you need in your program. Your living expenses are separate from that.

If you're a part-time or individualized post-graduate student,

your tuition fees will depend on the amount of your classroom studies, laboratory and fieldwork time, and on the amount of time you spend doing work outside the university. Still, it will be roughly proportional to the other kinds of programs, and will range from 2,000 to 8,000 EUROs per year. We figure out the exact amount of the tuition fee on the basis of your research plans and the expected duration of your studies.

Come and stay with us,

or at least, let us help you find a place for yourself. There are various promising housing opportunities for post-graduate students here at the SZENT ISTVÁN UNIVERSITY GÖDÖLLŐ. The Office of Doctoral and Habilitation Council will help you in finding good-quality, reasonably-priced accommodation in a dormitory, graduate dormitory or off-campus. The prices vary, but Hungary is one of the best in Europe in affording comfortable and clean housing.

Once you get that out of the way,

your application is reviewed by the Admissions Committee, and if the grade level on your final degree is that of good or above, you will get a letter stating that you have been admitted, and can start your studies upon payment of the first year's tuition, which means

You're in! Now what?

Choose a form of study that suits you.

We have three basic ways to carry out PhD studies at the SZENT ISTVÁN UNIVERSITY GÖDÖLLŐ:

  • ordinary or full-time course of study
  • part-time course of study
  • individualized course of study

Ordinary or full-time

courses of studies are usually offered to younger students who wish to continue their scientific studies immediately or within a few years after completing their university undergraduate studies. They're usually also ready to stay at the university as full-time Ph.D. students for at least three years in order to complete a three-year period of study. At the same time, students can carry out the research work they'll need to prepare and defend their thesis.

Part time

courses of study are often preferred by candidates employed in university research or commercial institutions; they usually have several years of research or other professional experiences. These candidates may feel the need to complete their previous studies, but don't want to give up their permanent position at their mother institution. The duration of this course of study and the exams they need to take are the same as for full-time students.

For international students,

who often wish to do their research work partly in their home country, the SZENT ISTVÁN UNIVERSITY GÖDÖLLŐ can offer the option of a part-time course of study allowing them to complete their studies at the University, while doing their research partly at their mother institution. These students have in many cases a dual supervision, with one supervisor from the SZENT ISTVÁN UNIVERSITY GÖDÖLLŐ and another from their home country. We call this way of courses as the "sandwich course".


Individualized courses

can be completed by experienced researchers or scientists who have already made considerable academic progress, or may have new scientific findings of their own to contribute to their fields. These kinds of students can get partial exemption from regular coursework and exams. By providing a detailed analysis and evaluation of their scientific background and progress, completing studies in selected topics and taking exams, they can submit their scientific thesis to the University Doctoral and Habilitation Council for a final defense. We still advise our students to refresh their knowledge by attending selected lectures and/or taking supplementary exams.

One day, it will all be over,

the class work, the fieldwork and the rest. That's when you will need to write a thesis. First, you'll have to get what we call an "absolutorium". This says that you have successfully finished your in-class and research training and the time is ripe to write the thesis.

After that, you can start

the defense process. To do that, first you have to submit an application to the Institute of Ph.D. Studies. Your publications and the thesis are attached to his application. The defense process starts with a comprehensive exam in your broad research area. The thesis will be evaluated and judged by two reviewers, who will give a written evaluation to the candidate. It's a transparent process, the candidate presents his or her findings and reacts to the reviewers' comments in front of a defense committee and a public audience.

If this sounds difficult,

then you understand what we're all about here. If it sounds like the kind of challenge that you can meet, with a little help from your friends (and colleagues, and professors), get in touch. Come out to the campus. Send in an application. We know you'll like what we do and where you can go from here.

The Animal Husbandry program deals with the research and development of domestic animals husbandry and production. Since 1989 the animal husbandry sector has undergone many changes. The changes and new challenges affect the rapidly increasing modernization in methods, and the public attitude towards animal husbandry.

Animal husbandry plays significant role in the national economy, especially in the food products of animal origin, and the establishment of conditions for competitive export production.

The utilization, recognition of up-to-date molecular biological-biotechnological methods, and their use in the work of students, is one of the principal objectives of the School. Besides research topics dealing with the principles of animal husbandry, another important field of the current animal husbandry research is the production of livestock species.

The satisfaction of strict animal protection requirements, the reasonable utilization of renewable natural resources, and the development of conditions for sustainable development are all needed before the country's accession to the European Union. The national R+D programs (e.g. Széchenyi NKFP) offer a wide base for the development of applicable R+D topics.

The main topics are:

  1. Biology of reproduction and development
  2. Animal biotechnology, molecular genetics in animal husbandry
  3. Animal nutrition, food toxicology
  4. Animal physiology
  5. Improvement and production of farmed ruminants
  6. Improvement and production of hog stocks
  7. Poultry farming

Mechanical Engineering PhD School

Leader: Prof. Dr. Péter Szendrő DSc


During establishing the goals of the Mechanical Engineering PhD School of Szent István University, the following principles were taken into consideration: The predictable requirement based on developing tendency of the technical background in the agriculture and food industry is that the production and application of the machines and tools should be environment-friendly, material-and energy-save. On the other hand it is important to organize the existing equipments to logistical system and arrange ecological operation and recycling in the strategy of the research. In the strategy of the research some promoted new topics should be emphasized, which ones serve same up to-date production technologies having less contact with the living world.

The global increase of agricultural production has to be realized in an ecological balance having decreased volume of the applied chemicals and energies. For sustainable development it has a basic interest to decrease the polluting materials getting into the environment and to economize with the resources.
