’It was my pleasure to come back to Szeged and the University. This was the fourth time in the city and I am always delighted to meet Indian students. I participated the International Cultural Night last year and I was glad to learn that many nationalities are present at the University of Szeged. In my thinking it can be attributed not only to the beauty of the town, but also to the high standard of academic work at SZTE. The University of Szeged is widely known and popular in India, as a result more and more Indian students come and study in Szeged. Students are satisfied with the education, they consider Szeged as a friendly place to live. However, many of the Indian students think that they have to study Hungarian once they arrive to Hungary; this is not true as many of the study programmes are offered in English and students can choose from a great variety of excellent programmes’ said His Excellency.

 

’Such visitations at the University of Szeged are important for me as I can meet other students from all corners of the world, and I have an opportunity to talk to Hungarians about India, its culture and current issues related’ he added.

SZTE Experience


HardeepHardeep Kaur - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics - Biology PhD

Many of my Indian friends had already been studying here, and SZTE was very popular among them because of its quality education, research and the international community. Without any doubt I submitted my application for Biology PhD. Now, this city serves second home to me: beautiful, clean and modern at the same time carrying its ethnicity. Once I leave the city, I will miss everything about Szeged especially my friends and workplace.

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.
