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


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.

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.
