Turkish Ambassador Visited the Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

On 28 February 2018, our University and the Faculty of Law and Political Sciences hosted the new Turkish Ambassador in Budapest, HEM Ahmet Akif Oktay, who began his post this year.

As the Ambassador pointed out during his meetings with the management and leadership of the University and the Faculty of Law and Political Sciences, he has already been to many university cities, but Szeged is the first town, where as part of the official visit he is also going to hold a lecture. Prof. Dr. Krisztina Karsai, Vice Rector for Education and Prof. Dr. László Trócsányi and dr. Márton Sulyok introduced the internationalization strategy of the University, then the English-language programs of the Faculty of Law in the field of law and international relations as well as those programs on other Faculties that have Turkish relevance.

His Excellency assured the University that from the Turkish part there is definite willingness to strengthen educational cooperation, to which our active Erasmus links are already a good example. In the next part of the afternoon visit, His Excellency talked about the development of Turkey's external relations as part of the Academic Lecture Series of the Master in International Relations program coordinated by the International and Regional Studies Institute. In his lecture, the Ambassador described how Turkish foreign policy became regional from local, then global through historical development. Besides historical examples, Ambassador Oktay spoke of the country's situation through economic indicators and the gradual increase of Turkey's international role in a multilateral framework.

Trócsányi asked His Excellency about the geopolitical situation of Turkey, and her relationship with the EU, along with the Turkish public opinion on the Union. The students asked questions regarding Turkey's migration policy and the refugee situation. The issue of Cyprus was also mentioned among the questions as well as Turkey's role in the NATO.

SZTE Experience

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.

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.
