  1. Do check the requirements indicated in the programme description, such as language requirements, preliminary studies, etc. Contact the coordinators of the programme in case of any question.
2. What documents I need to upload? 

Please bear in mind that application requirements (including the required documents) vary upon programmes. As a result it is always important to consult the programme description for further information.


Documents required by SZTE are the followings:

copy of passport,

certificate of previous studies in English (High School, Undergraduate, Graduate),

proof of language proficiency (attention – some faculties only accept international language exams, such as IELTS or TOEFL).

Documents required by the Programme: CV, motivational letter, reference letter, medical records.


3. What if I upload an irrelevant document?

In case you upload an irrelevant document you will be notified by our admission colleagues and you will be kept reminded to upload the relevant document automatically by the system.

4.
Do I need to upload English Translation?
You will always have to submit English translation of the original documents as English is the official language of administration regarding foreign students’ affairs.

5.
How can I pay the application fee? 
  1. First of all, you need to consult the ’Invoice’ generated by the system. It indicates the amounts and currency to be paid. You can find the details of the bank name, SWIFT codes, etc. on the document.
  2. Please make sure to pay the application fee in the required currency, otherwise your payment will not be identifiable.
  3. Moreover, please make sure to have both SWIFT codes indicated and the name of the corresponding bank. (E.g. Corresponding Bank: Hungarian National Bank, SWIFT code: MANEHUHB) as it is not possible to transfer money directly to the Hungarian State Treasury.

6. Two banks are indicated on my ’Invoice’ – which one do I need?
Since it is not possible to transfer directly to the Hungarian State Treasury, it is required to indicate the corresponding bank name. Please make sure to indicate both SWIFT codes.


In case you start initiating the transfer, you will need to type the bank account number to the relevant field and the system should recognize the name of the bank: Hungarian State Treasury – in this case HUSTHUHB is the SWIFT code you need to use.


In case an other name is recognized (Hungarian National Bank = Magyar Nemzeti Bank [MNB] Bank is the other one) the other SWIFT code, MANEHUHB is needed. Both of these codes and data were indicated in your Invoice section on DreamApply.


7. I got a notification of being indepted with a certain amount of money, however, I have already paid the entrance examination fee / tuition fee. What might have happened?
Sometimes banks charge a transaction fee on your money transfer, as a consequence money to be transferred will be deducted. Always consult your bank in advance if there is any transaction fee so that you can calculate with the proper amount; otherwise you will have to repeat the process and settle the remaining fee as your application / admission will not be complete without paying the whole fee.


8. When will I get a notification regarding the entrance examination?
Once the technical check on your documents is finished and they both met formal and substantive requirements, you will be automatically notified by our colleagues, so we suggest that you check your mailbox and your Dream Apply account on a daily basis. We kindly ask you to wait patiently and we will contact you as soon as it becomes possible.


9. How to contact regarding medical programmes (Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Nursing, foundation year)?
Please remember that programmes linked to healthcare are being handled by Foreign Students’ Secretariat. Contact them directly via apply.fs@med.u-szeged.hu.

SZTE Experience


JoseJose Eges - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics

I’m from Ecuador and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder in my second year. I chose University of Szeged because of its highly ranked status in Hungary. I like the generosity of the people and the fantastic university facilities. The student environment is very relaxing, and you learn a lot from the cultural diversity. The student mentors are helpful. Professors and members of faculty staff are very approachable to guide and support you with academic challenges. Life in Szeged is exciting, and my favorite spot is the bank of Tisza River. The landscape of the bridge across the river and the beachside perspective is a beauty. I do enjoy the good academic system, and friendly environment.


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.
