SZTE Experience


Yuanyuan_ChenYuanyuan Chen - International Economy and Business - Stipendium student

My first impression about Szeged was, that it is „a standard lovely Western city. You can see colourful buildings everywhere; enjoy the sunshine, walk in the nature, study in the bright, high-tech library”. I think this is a perfect place for students where they can experience sparkling culture diversity, enjoy the peacefulness of everyday life, meet a lot of kind and motivating people, enjoy the inspiring academic atmosphere, taste the food not only from Hungary but also from the world. I can call Szeged my second home.

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.
