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

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 heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.
