This is a detailed study about students’ mobility and education in relation to Central-Eastern Europe. Based on the example of university attendees from the town of Kosice, located in present-day Eastern Slovakia, formerly in the Hungarian Kingdom, the author addresses several aspects discussed in the social and university history, such as matriculation facts and numbers, financing university studies, postgraduate opportunities and impact of university attendance upon the development of individual careers. The research is based upon an extensive prosopographical catalogue which comprises all university attendees from Kosice throughout the research period, identified in the available sources. The results contribute to a better understanding of the conditions surrounding university attendance of town burghers during the research period, while the prosopographical catalogue provides valuable material for further research.
