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.


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.)





By train

There are InterCity trains running from Ferihegy Railway Station to Szeged in every hour. Travel time: approx. 2 hours, without changing trains.

In the railway station building you can find a ticket office to buy your train ticket to Szeged; there are also some automated ticket machines on the platform. (Approx. 4000 HUF)

SZTE Experience

I came from a city where young women have recently successfully fought against the mentality that had not allowed them to go to study abroad.5 years ago families were extremely protective over their daughters, but nowadays it has been changed into a new perception which allows girls to have the freedom to choose their way of life: career and personal development.

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.
