"Petru Maior" University of Targu-Mures, part of Romania's education system, is a state institution for higher education and scientific research. The two components of its activity are kept in a balance under a quantitative and qualitative aspect, in a relatively equal proportion. The teaching staff, the researchers and the administrative staff are all focused upon providing the qualitative parameters that allow the transformation of our institution from a regional university into a university of national character, open towards internationalization, providing instruction in the following fields: engineering, economics, law, philology, history, administrative science, mathematics, information technology, socio-pedagogy, etc.
Predominantly, "Petru Maior" University of Targu-Mures trains young people of different nationalities from the Mures county and the neighbouring counties; it also trains, in increasing numbers, students from various other regions of the country. Over 4000 students attend the three faculties which offer undergraduate courses (both under the traditional form and as Part-Time Learning) and postgraduate courses.
"Petru Maior" University of Targu-Mures also represents a centre of permanent training for the specialists in areas where the institution has the necessary competence; it stimulates regional activity in the scientific, cultural, technical, economic and social field.
"Petru Maior" University of Targu-Mures represents one of the most important information centres for both the regional and national community. This is achieved through the availability of scientific, technical, economic and other information, stored by conventional methods (books, magazines, standards, patents), or by more modern support (CDs, DVDs, USB flash-drives), and through the large Internet access provided to both national and international information resources.


The university has in administration two student dorms in the campus, where it offers incoming students accommodation under the same conditions as for its own students. Foreign students may also choose private accommodation (between. 150 – 250 EUR/month/apartment or studio).
Students benefit of free access in all laboratories and free internet access.
The sport activities are developed within the sport centre of the University (a floodlighted court for handball, volleyball, basketball, tennis) as well as in the gym hall of the University and in “Muresul” Sport Complex.
