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

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.

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.
