Identical Appearance, Different Personalities – Meet The Mentor-Twins of SZTE

The Prekajac-sisters became mentors of the Erasmus Student Network after a year spent in Spain with Erasmus scholarship. Petra and Ella help Spanish-speaking students at the University of Szeged.

’We discuss what to wear and how to style our hair every single morning; we look identical, yet we are different in our identities’ says Ella. Petra is honest, open-minded, impatient and oversensitive, while her sister is precise, patient and funny.

The identical twins do almost everything together: they love dancing and singing, but their true passion is to help others. ’After having spent a year in Spain with Erasmus, we had to realize that we need so much help and assistance when one has to live abroad – this is the reason why we joined the ESN Szeged mentoring body to assist Spanish students. Mostly we help them in finding a flat, using the library as well as dealing with administrative issues. We also take part in organising several programmes for international students.’

SZTE Experience


SantiagoSantiago Vallejo - Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

I’m from Ecuador and a Ph.D. student from the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship program. I first heard about the University of Szeged on the internet. The general study environment is nice and student life in the city is lovely. With my program and the academic system, I can control my time which is a plus. The city is very affordable, and I live in the city center. One of my favorite extra-curricular activities is the Hungarian cultural programs. I have so many favorite spots, but parks are top on the list. The professors and staffs are very approachable. The mentors and classmates also did an excellent job to explore and know the city better. I hope to continue my career as a professor, and I would recommend the university to friends because it is, in general, a beautiful place.

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.
