The Cooperation between SZTE and Shangai University of Political Science and Law is Continuing

Rector Prof. Gábor Szabó and Yin’e Zhou Vice Rector for Education agreed on the enlargement and carrying-on of the educational and research cooperation launched in 2012 between the University of Szeged and the Shangai University of Political Science and Law (SHUPL) in November.

The aformentioned cooperation constituted a ground for the establishment of Gateway programme, which is basically an exchange programme for students. 8 Chinese students started their studies at the Faculty of Law of SZTE within the framework of Gateway in the first fall semester of the initiative in 2012; students keep arriving from term to term and their number increased to 39 in the fall semester of 2017.

 

The programme is dynamically developing, the number of Chinese students in Szeged and of partner institutions cooperating with SZTE is continously rising. The delegation of SHUPL arrived to Szeged not only to have the present contract extended, but also to discuss the possibilities of the enlargement of the collaboration.

 

The growing number of Chinese students provided a reason to extend the cooperation with Chinese universities: scholars arriving from the Shanghai International Studies University, the Northwest University, the Northwest University of Political Science and Law and the Xi’an Polytechnic University had the chance to study the Hungarian and the European law system. According to the current planning, the East China University of Political Science and Law will also send foreign students to Szeged.

The Faculty of Law of SZTE has the intention to establish an even wider cooperation between partner institutions and hopefully students from Szeged can also enter part-time courses in China.

SZTE Experience

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.
