Student Card


Temporary Student ID

  • Valid (at least temporary) student ID is necessary for buying or applying for a monthly student pass, which might be useful for international students.
  • Required documents: an activated EHA-code (following the Neptun registration) and the student’s passport.


Permanent Student ID

In case of longer stays (in excess of 1 year), application for a permanent student ID is recommended.

  • Required documents: passport and certificate of university attendance

Process of application:

  • At the Okmányiroda (National Office for Legal Identification Documents) personal details are registered and a photo is taken of the student free of charge.
  • The student receives a form, which should be taken to the Students’ Services Office (HSZI).
  • The actual application costs 1400 HUF. This fee can be paid on the spot by credit card or at the post office by cash.
  • The Students’ Services Office will inform the student if the permanent student ID is ready.
  • In case of group arrivals (groups of 5-10 people), the coordinator should make an appointment at the Okmányiroda.
  • English-speaking administrator is provided at the Okmányiroda

It is mandatory to hold a student card, as it is the only way of proving that you have an active status at the University. I also entitles students to enjoy a number of discounts in many places.

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 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.
