’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

The University of Szeged is a well-known and internationally ranked institution in Hungary and worldwide. It is such a wonderful experience to study here. Instructors are professionals and well-qualified; students are nice and open towards foreign cultures. Events organised by the faculties are pleasant and help with integration as well as provide the opportunity to get new acquaintances and friends.

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.
