Physical Education

Sports and competitive opportunities for students at Óbuda University are provided by the Physical Education and Sports Institute (TSI). You can reach them at the following contact information:

In Óbuda University, physical education classes are held in four sports halls located at Tavaszmező Street, Népszínház Street, Doberdó Street, and Thököly Street, as well as at external venues.

Starting from the 2023/24/1 semester and with the introduction of the “F” curriculum, physical education becomes a criterion subject with the following duration:

  • For FOKSz (Faculty of Communication) programs, it is a 1-semester subject.
  • For BA/BSc/BProf (Bachelor) programs, it is a 4-semester subject.
  • For MA/MSc (Master) programs, it is a 2-semester subject.

Students from both full-time and part-time schedules have the opportunity to earn 1 credit point every semester. The acceptance of the semester is uniform at all campuses.

Students admitted to the “F” curriculum will initially be enrolled in the “Physical Education I” course, which serves as a collecting course. During the registration period, they can choose from the available courses and finalize their selection by changing their registration to the chosen course.
