UNIVERSITATEA BABEȘ-BOLYAI

Introduction

Our University is a dynamic and traditional institution with deep roots in Central Europe and strong international academic ties. Its origins date back to 1581, which makes it the oldest institution of higher education in Romania. It is also the largest Romanian university (approximately 40.000 students and 1.700 faculty staff ), situated at the confluence of the Eastern and Western cultures. As an academic public institution, its aim is to promote and sustain the development of specific cultural components within the local, regional, national and international community.

Situated in a geographical area characterized by the presence of diverse ethnic and religious groups, the University benefits from a multicultural and multilingual environment that gives its unique character, and it offers complete studies in Romanian, Hungarian, and German.

In addition, the University lays considerable stress on foreign language skills and on educational programmes in widely spoken languages, therefore it provides a wide range of internationally competitive BA, MA and Ph.D. programmes in English, French or Italian. Also, in order to allow all students to study at least one foreign language, the University provides for language centres (Lingua Language Centre and Alpha Language Centre) and 21 cultural centres.

Modern Buildings & High-Tech Laboratories

The University’s assets comprise modern buildings, equipped with laboratories at high technical standards, libraries, sports and leisure facilities. Each faculty, cultural centre, and research institute has its own library, all being coordinated by the Central Library. We also provide high quality support services, 15 dormitories (with a total capacity of 5.000 places), eateries (2 restaurants and 4 cafeterias), museums (Academic Museum, Mineralogical Museum, Zoological Museum, University Memorial Park, Museum of Paleontology and Stratigraphy), cultural centres, language centres and other facilities, such as the Botanical Garden, or the Sports Park.

Outstanding Educational and Research Facilities

Our students benefit from outstanding educational and research opportunities under the guidance of a well established academic staff. Research has continuously and thoroughly been promoted along our University’s existence and therefore, laboratories and research centres of internationally scientific relevance have been created. In this respect, Universitatea Babeș-Bolyai has made significant investments in the research area, in order to increase its performance and international visibility.

Vivid & Colourful Student Life

Cluj-Napoca is genuinely a university city animated by a vivid and colourful cultural life and entertainment possibilities. It provides both students and its long-life standing residents various museums (History, Art, Ethnography, Pharmacy, Linguistics Romanian National Opera House and Hungarian Opera House, Puppet Theater), leisure parks, movie theatres and movie complexes, malls (Iulius Mall and Polus Mall) and shopping centres (Central, Sora). Annually, our city hosts international and European film festivals (Transylvania Film Festival, Night of Ad Eaters) and various music festivals (Musical Autumn in Cluj), thus uniting people from different parts of the world in one sole multiethnic and multicultural gathering.
