Summary/Abstract: Building on the theoretical background of the “Inclusive University” programme at the University of Pécs, our research examined the different programmes of each faculty that focus on the target groups of inclusion. Our questionnaire and deep-interview research were extended to all faculties of the University (N = 10), examining inclusive programmes and fields that need to be improved. We found out that three student groups were supported mostly (namely: foreign, disabled and disadvantaged/Roma/Gypsy students). Examining the organizational side, we have discovered that the individual and community support of the students in the need of inclusion is more characteristic at the University of Pécs, and there is a smaller number of programmes that involve or affect their whole educational environment. As a summary we can say that the signs of becoming inclusive can already be detected at the University of Pécs – however, the future and desirable development of this process requires further steps in many respects.
