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

jiang_xuezhiJiang Xuezhi - Faculty of Economics - Business Administration and Management (BA)

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.

Many of my Indian friends had already been studying here, and SZTE was very popular among them because of its quality education, research and the international community. Without any doubt I submitted my application for Biology PhD. Now, this city serves second home to me: beautiful, clean and modern at the same time carrying its ethnicity. Once I leave the city, I will miss everything about Szeged especially my friends and workplace.
