About the Georgikon

The Georgikon Faculty in Keszthely – in view of its legal predecessors - is the oldest regular institution of agricultural higher education in Europe. It was established in 1797 by Count György Festetics, whose aim was to educate Hungarian farm stewards by transferring practical agricultural knowledge and skills, and to provide education opportunity for those dealing with the land in order to improve the country’s agriculture. Though the institution was established primarily to train the count’s farm leaders, attending the lessons and taking exams in the selected subjects was open to everyone without having to pay tuition fee. The founder also supported students who did not intend to settle down on his farms, or came to Keszthely only to study by scholarships. Outstanding characters of the Hungarian agricultural education were among the teachers of the institution.

After several institutional changes, the Faculty folded in year 2000 as a result of the reform of the higher education in Hungary, and became a part of the Veszprém University. The current name of this integrated institution is the University of Pannonia.

Values respected and preserved ever since the establishment of the school have always provided the earnest of its ability to survive and meet the challenges since more than two hundred years now. These values are not only preserved, but we feel it our duty to always remind our students of their importance.

It is also the watchword of the Georgikon that obliges us to do so: „Live so and remember: you are the preserver of our honour”.
