NUPS is a main organiser of two summer schools, both of which is traditionally hosted by the university.
The Euro-Atlantic Summer School in the co-organisation of the Ministry of Defence and the Hungarian Defence Forces, and also with the support of NATO, was organised for the 17th time in 2016. The idea of creating a summer school dealing with security and defence policy was closely related to Hungary’s adhesion to NATO.
In recent years the training centre of the Hungarian Defence Forces at Szolnok served as the venue of the event, offering special programmes, such as visits to a helicopter base.
The Global Minority Rights Summer School was organised in 2013 for the first time and is getting more and more popular since then. The summer school is co-organised with the British Middlesex University and the Hungarian Tom Lantos Institute. Traditionally NUPS hosts the one-week-long event in Budapest, in 2016 the venue was the newly rebuilt Ludovika Campus and the newly built Ludovika Residence Hall.
