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

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.

The University of Szeged is a well-known and internationally ranked institution in Hungary and worldwide. It is such a wonderful experience to study here. Instructors are professionals and well-qualified; students are nice and open towards foreign cultures. Events organised by the faculties are pleasant and help with integration as well as provide the opportunity to get new acquaintances and friends.
