At the Faculty of International Relations, the branch of study - Economics of Foreign Trade - was changed to International Business. Other programs, focusing on Business and Law, International Politics and Diplomacy or Tourism emerged during the nineties. Nowadays the Faculty has more than 200 academics, and in the Bachelor's and Master's programs there are enrolled around 3,500 students.

With the exception of some postgraduate programmes, summer universities and the life-long education programmes, the course of study at the UEP is free of charge.
