Units for SZTE Students

The Confucius Institute at the University of Szeged was officially opened in the autumn of 2012 as a result of cooperation between the University of Szeged and the Shanghai International Studies University with the support of Hanban (Confucius Institute Headquarters). For those interested in learning Chinese as a foreign language the Institute offers language classes taught by professional Chinese language teachers. Language classes are held both at the classrooms of the Confucius Institute and of the different faculty buildings of the university. Besides language teaching, the Institute emphasises the importance of introducing Chinese culture to a wide audience: the Institute organises a great variety of exciting programs free to attend by the public.
The University Library integrates the infrastructure of every faculty and department. In the Centre there is room for more than a thousand students, making it the largest in the country. The four open levels of shelves contain 350.000 volumes and a further 1,5 million volumes and journals in storage.
The Congress Centre was opened to the public in December 2004. The Congress Centre (which is unique in the East European region) provides a venue for university and business programmes as well as cultural and charity events (concerts, exhibitions).
The web page of the Sports Centre provides information about the completion of courses, associations supervising the sporting life of the university, sports institutions and projects.
The University Computer Centre provides central IT services for the University of Szeged, including help desk and application management (Neptun).
The first – formal – step of the higher educational integration was the establishment of a central service office, which is capable of providing high level integrated services.
We provide help for the student community in tackling life management difficulties. We offer our counselling services for all active students of the University of Szeged for five sessions free of charge upon registration.
The university-level representation of the students is provided by the Students’ Union. The main task of the Students Union and the students’ movement is to identify the problems of faculties and departments and synthesize them in a manner which helps the students to step up united and effectively, on institutional or even wider platforms.
To make university citizens feel the lifelong support of the institution, the Alma Mater Office is there to maintain contact with former students.
The University of Szeged Career Office functions as a mediator between the students and the labour market. During their training students can improve their skills; thus the office helps the students’ preparation for seeking jobs.
In the shop various products with SZTE and faculty logos, emblems and blazons, Hungarian and English inscriptions can be purchased.
Students can obtain their notes through the Book Shops of the University of Szeged, where they can use their student card.
The Jate Klub offering colourful programmes to the students of Szeged.

SZTE Experience


HardeepHardeep Kaur - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics - Biology PhD

Many of my Indian friends had already been studying here, and SZTE was very popular among them because of its quality education, research and the international community. Without any doubt I submitted my application for Biology PhD. Now, this city serves second home to me: beautiful, clean and modern at the same time carrying its ethnicity. Once I leave the city, I will miss everything about Szeged especially my friends and workplace.


PhuongPhuong Thu Tran - Faculty of Economics - Business Administration and Management

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.
