1. Document Check

Newly admitted students should visit their Faculty in order to have their data checked by presenting the original academic and identity documents (if not sent to the Faculty in advance). At the end of this process enrolled students sign their Academic Registration Sheet and receive their Neptun Code/ID.

Neptun is an online system with many functions. In order to have access to the online system you will be provided with a NEPTUN code upon registration. The first step is to log in to the system by using the data indicated on your Academic Registration Sheet. You will use Neptun to register for your subjects, exam dates and in some cases even to settle your finances. Your exam grades will also appear on the Neptun system along with your class schedule, gradebook and many others.


In order to gain active student status, it is required to register for at least one course in the given semester in Neptun.

    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’m from Brazil, but I feel very comfortable in Szeged. Attending the courses, I acquired thorough knowledge, which was helped by the well-equipped labs, and the modern library of the University. Despite the hustle and bustle, the town is still safe, the quality of life is considerably high, and we receive every assistance to fit in, such as excellent program administration or help searching for accommodations.
