Pharmacists on Two Wheels

Cycle tours were attended by students, educators and employees of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Szeged. 50 participants cycled 45 kilometers on 6th October.

‘The idea of cycling was born with the intention of team building. Building a relationship between students and educators was the main goal but it is also important that new connections within the student community can be built on such an event’ – Dr. Dezső Csupor said. The Vice Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Szeged said that while the Faculty is one of the smallerst wings and the students know technically every instructor, it is quite different to develop a lecture, practice or exam interaction than to talk unconsciously during a cycle tour. The university hierarchy does not apply at this time, which is good for the establishment and deepening of relationships.

‘There was a further motivation to find an opportunity for community building that is in line with the concept of a health-conscious faculty. This year, several initiatives are being implemented in this spirit, for example, towards the end of the year, we plan to carry out a Faculty Health Day,’ the Vice Dean of the Faculty explained.

‘50 participants attended the even: students, PhD students (including foreigners), staff, trainers mixed. The 45 km distance was met by everyone. The route led to Szeged via the Mélypont (the Deepest Point in Hungary), Tiszasziget through Kübekháza and then through Szőreg. Participants at the Kübecker Manufaktur at BENU dr. With the courtesy of Kaiser Pharmacies, they made up for the lost calories with a lunch.


‘This was the first tour, but based on the number of participants and the positive feedbacks it was certainly not the last. In spring, we will grab our bikes again, hopefully with a similar success’ said Csupor Dezső.

SZTE Experience


Imane_CherbiImane Cherbi - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

My name is Cherbi Imane and I am 23 years old from Algeria. I am spending my last semester at the University of Szeged Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Being an MA student of Applied Linguistics, University of Szeged offered me a chance to gain sufficient knowledge about my field of study. I choose the University of Szeged simply because it is a highly ranked academic institution both nationally and internationally; also because of the variety of programs that they have for international students.

I love everything in Szeged: every corner of every street, I will always keep them in my heart. I take photos of the city when walking around and I am planning to launch a blog to promote this beautiful corner of Hungary among international students. People of Szeged are caring, always smiling and we are living peacefully together. I have never felt isolated or neglected. As a coffee lover, i always enjoy having my favorite type of coffee in different coffees in Szeged. Lookin for calmness and nature vibes, I would certainly walk by the Tisza river whenever I want.

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.
