SZTE organizes Summer University in Hungarian Studies

The Hungarian Studies Center of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Szeged has organized the 17th annual Summer University for international students interested in Hungarian language and culture.

About forty students coming from all corners of the world are expected to join the program. The Summer University was founded in 2001 in order to introduce the Hungarian language and culture to citizens of other countries. Students are coming among others from the United States, Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia, Israel, India, China, Japan, Germany, Slovakia, Serbia and Russia to participate in the four-week program.


Hungarian language is instructed at five levels and morning language classes are followed by language practice classes and lectures on Hungarian history, literature, film and art history. The leisure and recreation activities are also wide-ranging: in addition to touring the noteworthy sites of Szeged, students can participate in Hungarian film evenings as well.


One of the most popular events at the Summer University is the International Evening (Nemzetközi Est). For this students introduce their countries by preparing traditional food, teaching a folk song or dance, or in some other way.


Many students return from previous years, and some of them even stay for a whole year to continue learning the Hungarian language or to study at the University of Szeged in a degree program.

SZTE Experience

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.

I am studying at University of Szeged as a former Erasmus student, currently as a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder. Both the institution and the town are wonderful. Many entertainment and sports facilities are provided, and it is also easy to make new friends. It is a great experience to attend the University, and I would like to stay in Szeged and continue my academic studies.
