Exhibition of Foreign Students’ Portraits

An exhibition entitled ’Faces of SZTE’ was opened on the 24th of October in József Attila Study and Information Centre. The portraits made by Anna Bobkó – the photo reporter of the University of Szeged – give an insight into the multicultural milieu of the institution.

According to official data from the Ministry of Education, the University of Szeged is the third most popular university among foreign students in the rural country. While 2,632 foreign students enrolled in the Academic Year of 2015-2016, their number rose to 3,208 in the following year. Students are coming from all corners of the world: from Canada to South Africa; from Bolivia to China and from all the continents. Indonesia, Guinea, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Jamaica are just a few of the countries represented in the student body. The portraits of Anna Bobkó give an insider’s view of the multicultural life at SZTE.

 

The opening event of the exhibition also provided an opportunity for the foreign students to get to know each other; Prof. Dr. Katalin Nagy, Vice Rector for International Affairs addressed a celebratory opening speech.

SZTE Experience


julieJulie Deschanels- Faculty of Law and Political Sciences- Business Law

I chose the University of Szeged, because it has a very good international reputation. When I previously checked the website of the University I liked the fact that Szeged is not too big and too small. I received a lot of help from the ESN mentors. I like Hungary and Szeged a lot and I’m enjoying my classes. When I have free time I go jogging, or play foosball with my friends. In Szeged I really love Süti, nem süti, the river and TIK, because it is just perfect place to study: specious place with full of students and books.

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.
