ELTE’s Faculty of Humanities is also a great place to conduct research. The faculty actively takes part in national and international collaborations funded by the European Union or the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Talented students may participate in such projects in cooperation with their tutors.

The faculty promotes bi- and multilateral international educational and research collaboration with the region’s and the world’s leading higher education and research institutions. We strive to become a leading centre of humanities research within the Central European region. The instructors of the faculty’s 18 institutes regularly travel abroad and host their international colleagues at home. They regularly organise international academic conferences and, by sending their students abroad, ensure that the future generations of researchers and instructors receive high-level training with an international outlook. Our instructors foster personal working or consultative relationships with university tutors and research centre staff from 40 countries, many of whom are involved in the editorial processes of renowned international scientific journals.
