About the Programme

The programme provides our students with a rigorous and challenging curriculum to help them succeed in their post-academic and professional endeavours. The first year of the 4-semester-long programme consists of lectures, seminars and practical training in advanced genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology, bioinformatics, immunology, cell biology, microbiology and plant biology. Both the basic and the applied/ industrial science aspects of these disciplines will be studied extensively. In the second year students will have several laboratory courses in different aspects of molecular biology, cell biology, biotechnology, microbiology and plant biology. Graduates of the Faculty usually choose their careers in research laboratories, educational institutions, hospitals, clinics, environmental agencies, and pharmaceutical, food, agricultural and chemical industries. Successful graduates can also continue their studies and research by applying for our international Biology PhD programme at the University of Szeged.


Specialisation options: the programme offers many more specialised lectures that are tailored to the students’ individual interests.

Social integration of our students is important to us. Our academic and support staff, therefore, offer an allround advisory service providing both academic and extracurricular activities. A coordination office helps the students during their entire stay in Szeged.

SZTE Experience


Nazrin_BakirovaNazrin Bakirova- International Economy and Business

I came from a city where young women have recently successfully fought against the mentality that had not allowed them to go to study abroad.5 years ago families were extremely protective over their daughters, but nowadays it has been changed into a new perception which allows girls to have the freedom to choose their way of life: career and personal development.

I am studying at University of Szeged as a former Erasmus student, currently as a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder. Both the institution and the town are wonderful. Many entertainment and sports facilities are provided, and it is also easy to make new friends. It is a great experience to attend the University, and I would like to stay in Szeged and continue my academic studies.
