SZTE Experience


AndiAndi Rahmat Saleh - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences - Ph.D. Studies

I’m a Ph.D. student from Indonesia and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship student. I first heard about the University of Szeged from the Tempus Foundation university list with excellent program descriptions, and it caught my eyes. My student life has been a pleasant one because of the beautiful environment, and TIK library facility. The teachers and staffs are accommodating, and my mentors and classmates also contributed to exploring the city with pleasant memories. The city is very affordable, and I live in a shared flat very close to the city center. In my free time, I engage in sporting activities or watch movies. My favorite spot is the Dugonics square, but my best attraction is the Tisza River. The University of Szeged is a beautiful experience for me, and I will recommend it to my friends. I am happy to be part of the University of Szeged.

I’m a Ph.D. student from Ghana and enrolled in a scholarship program. I heard about the university for the first time from a friend as a peaceful and friendly place to be. Indeed, the city of Szeged is a quiet, and peaceful place to live. My supervisor and HOD’S approach to teaching gives me a better insight and understanding of the program. The city is very friendly, and I go shopping and walking in my free time. The Dom square is a magnificent landmark, and the surrounding buildings are excellent reference points of a branded city of natural beauty. The most attractive place for me in Szeged is the zoo. Hungary is a beautiful country with the rivers such as the Danube, Tisza and the surrounding bridges. My expectations of the university and study environment keep improving by the day, and I’m delighted. I will recommend the university to because of the quality educational system for career development.
