Mission Statement

 

I consider the Chancellorship of the University of Szeged as the peak of my professional career since I am serving one of Hungary’s most prominent educational, research and health care institutions. It is in the mutual interest of Hungarian higher education and the country to implement development plans that will allow the University to obtain an increasing number of excellent positions in the international rankings of higher education institutions. In order to achieve these objectives, my principal duty is to contribute to the optimal, cost-efficient and transparent realisation of the fundamental tasks of the University, such as education, research and healthcare. Using the tools at my disposal, I intend to do this in compliance with the interests and expectations of the Ministry of National Resources and in close cooperation with the Rector.

 

As Chancellor of the University, I will do my best to ensure that education is developed in accordance with economic and social needs. My aim is to encourage outstanding academic achievement in the field of pure and applied research, and strengthen collaboration with industrial and external participants in order to increase the income of the University. As a Health Economist, my focus is the implementation of a healthcare system in Szeged and its region, which is in line with the requirements of the 21st century, and enhances the University’s ability to attract and retain experts.

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.

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.
