Burnout is an ever present part of the XXI. century. It is investigated predominantly in professions where communication and interaction with others are basic necessities. According to literature data, those of human services, - e.g. health-care, education … - are of greatest danger. However, not only teachers and lecturers may experience elevated level of burnout, but students, especially those under extreme pressure, as well. Present study aims to investigate the burnout of students at Óbuda University. Research was conducted among 191 university students with the use of the Maslach Burnout Inventory. According to research findings 11 percent of students at Óbuda University are burnt out to an extreme extent. Male students were at greater risk, as well as those, of older age and longer past of higher educational studies.
