Green University



What can a university provide its students with?


Generally speaking, universities provide students with knowledge, love of the chosen profession and special attitude to life. These were also our aims when we launched a “greening” programme in our University; and we are fortunate because we can cooperate with a generation which believes that the Earth has not been inherited from our fathers, but is lent to us by our grandchildren.

The use of solar cell energy influences our infrastructure resulting in the saving of tens of millions of forints, while reducing our ecological footprint. The green developments of the Study and Information Centre (TIK), the university buildings functioning on the basis of environment-friendly principles, great success of the use of geothermal energy and campaigns inspiring energy saving and supporting the already widespread use of bicycles are clear-cut examples of our green university programme.

SZTE Experience


simsonSimson Ndadaleka Shaakumeni - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences - PhD Studies

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.
