How to get to Szeged

Szeged is situated in the South-East of Hungary. It is easily accessible by rail or road from most major Hungarian cities. Budapest is 175 km away.


ARRIVAL IN HUNGARY


By Air

You will arrive at 2A terminal of Liszt Ferenc Airport. Close to this terminal you can find the Ferihegy Railway Station (Budapest Airport), where you can buy your train ticket to Szeged.

Between terminal 2A and Ferihegy Railway Station there is the bus 200E. You have to buy a ticket to use this bus. You can buy it on the bus for 450 HUF, or in terminal 2A for 350 HUF, but this is more complicated. (àYou can find an automated ticket machine (like an ATM) at the exit, where you can buy a single ticket. If the machine only works with HUF and you haven’t got any, you have to exchange some money or try to buy a ticket in the post office on the gallery-floor.)

SZTE Experience


AndiAndi Rahmat Saleh - Faculty of Arts - Ph.D. Studies

I’m a Ph.D. student from Indonesia and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship student. I first heard about the University of Szeged from the Tempus Foundation university list with excellent program descriptions, and it caught my eyes. My student life has been a pleasant one because of the beautiful environment, and TIK library facility. The teachers and staffs are accommodating, and my mentors and classmates also contributed to exploring the city with pleasant memories. The city is very affordable, and I live in a shared flat very close to the city center. In my free time, I engage in sporting activities or watch movies. My favorite spot is the Dugonics square, but my best attraction is the Tisza River. The University of Szeged is a beautiful experience for me, and I will recommend it to my friends. I am happy to be part of the University of Szeged.

I am studying at University of Szeged as a former Erasmus student, currently as a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder. Both the institution and the town are wonderful. Many entertainment and sports facilities are provided, and it is also easy to make new friends. It is a great experience to attend the University, and I would like to stay in Szeged and continue my academic studies.
