International Relations of the University of Szeged


The presence of the University of Szeged on the international scene is just as important as academic life is international. The excellence of universities is judged by international standards and, even though we have already achieved high rankings at this level in recent years, it is our intention to widen further our relations and cooperation with university networks.

 

Our relations worldwide

In order to support international student, staff and academic mobility the University of Szeged maintains fruitful co-operation with more than 130 highly-ranked universities in 52 countries, and study programmes for international students at the University of Szeged dates back to the 1980s. Since than we have been welcoming students of an increasing number of nationalities.

SZTE Experience


JoseJose Eges - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics

I’m from Ecuador and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder in my second year. I chose University of Szeged because of its highly ranked status in Hungary. I like the generosity of the people and the fantastic university facilities. The student environment is very relaxing, and you learn a lot from the cultural diversity. The student mentors are helpful. Professors and members of faculty staff are very approachable to guide and support you with academic challenges. Life in Szeged is exciting, and my favorite spot is the bank of Tisza River. The landscape of the bridge across the river and the beachside perspective is a beauty. I do enjoy the good academic system, and friendly environment.


SantiagoSantiago Vallejo - Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

I’m from Ecuador and a Ph.D. student from the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship program. I first heard about the University of Szeged on the internet. The general study environment is nice and student life in the city is lovely. With my program and the academic system, I can control my time which is a plus. The city is very affordable, and I live in the city center. One of my favorite extra-curricular activities is the Hungarian cultural programs. I have so many favorite spots, but parks are top on the list. The professors and staffs are very approachable. The mentors and classmates also did an excellent job to explore and know the city better. I hope to continue my career as a professor, and I would recommend the university to friends because it is, in general, a beautiful place.
