    Admission requirements Foreign students who wish to study in Romania are invited to send the registration form directly to the education institution or to the Romanian Ministry of Education and Research, Department of International Relations at the address: Str. G-ral Berthelot nr. 28 - 30, Bucuresti 70738, Romania, Phone: 40-1-3131013, fax: 40-1-3126614. Foreign students are accepted to study in Romania based on the approval of the Ministry of Education and Research. The entry visa to Romania (if required) can be obtained at the Romanian Embassy in your country.

    List of documents required for the application to study:
  • Application (registration) form;
  • Record of studies as proof of level of studies completed (High School Diploma or if the case is such, License Diploma);
  • Record of School transcripts for the completed years of studies, in the case of partial comparative studies or continuing post-academic studies.

  • These documents have to be presented in original, accompanied by certified translations into an international language (English, French or German, if the case is such) and validated as authentic by the Romanian Embassy and the Ministry of Education from your country.

    Foreign students are enrolled in the program without admission examination, above the set number of Romanian students approved. Generally, foreign students are enrolled in university and post-academic programs after completing the preparatory year of Romanian language study. During this year you also benefit of specific training for your future education. After completion of the preparatory year you will hold a test which confers a Certificate of Graduation of the Preparatory Year. For registration in faculties where teaching is held in a foreign language, you will have to pass a test in that specific language. Persons who are from a country having the official language the language of study and have taken courses previously in the same language, are exempted from the test. Applicants who studied in their country for a period of 4 years in Romanian language, are exempt from the language test and the preparatory year. Also, applicants who speak Romanian and are able to hold the language test without the preparatory year may do so.

    Foreign citizens who intend to study architecture, arts or sports must hold an aptitude test specific to their specialization, prior to enrollment.

    For Ph.D. programs, applicants must hold a pre-examination to determine their level of knowledge in the field. The exam can be held at the higher education institution chosen by the applicant. Foreign citizens can cover study expenses through Romanian Government scholarships or through their own financing.

    At the University of Oradea there operates an International Relationship Department since 1996. The coordinator is Ph.D. Prof. Ioan Horga, Phone No. +40 59 432 830 ext. 183, Fax: +40 59 467 642 or +40 59 432 789, E-mail:

    Research Centers and Teams

    Research complements teaching at the University of Oradea. Extensive research is carried out in research centers, research groups, and within faculties. The directions for research are set by the academic community, by taking into account the existing research capability, local heritage, present and future demands. Research is part of every academic employee's work. It is one of the criteria in evaluating the employee's performance. It may be part of the didactic performance plan.

    One major objective of our research programs has been attracting a large number of students and specialists from our University and from elsewhere, into becoming interested in these fields. For this purpose, the University concluded several protocols with various institutions in the country and abroad. Protocols are focused on interdisciplinary themes in various fields. They are supported with seminars, conferences and mutual research contracts.

    Scientific research, at the University of Oradea, encompasses both the fundamental and the applied side. Direct application of the results of fundamental research is specifically emphasized.

    Research, at the University of Oradea, is strategically developed in the following directions:

    The International Center for Euro-Regional Research (CICERO):

    For the moment, we have five research branches, but their number may increase, depending on the problems approached by CICERO. These branches are:
    · Historic and Demographic Regional Bases. Taking into account the fact that we are concerned with a geographically delimited region, we consider it necessary to put forward its historic and demographic basis. Both historians and sociologists will be involved in the activity of this department.
    · Spatial Aspect of the Euro-region. We focus mainly on geographic research. The professors and students of the Geography Chair will be involved in this section.
    · The Economic Problem of Euro-regional Cooperation. The economic aspects, as well as those concerning European integration will be envisaged.
    · Political aspect, the active involvement in solving certain administrative and political matters of the Carpathian Euro-region.
    · Cultural aspect. We will place here the aspects related to art, culture, and civilization in the region mentioned above; we will also approach matters that are related to mass media and its role in the democratisation and transition process towards a new system of values.

    We have to mention that research is carried out by each faculty department and it is materialized in scientific dissertations, presented on various national and international symposiums, congresses, conferences. The coordination of the research activity according to the department's plans and the stimulation of the creative spirit determined lately the publishing, by the didactic staff of the university, of an important number of papers and articles in specialty publications and Doctoral thesis.
