European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH)

Université Paris-Saclay (France), Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (Germany), Lund University (Sweden), University of Porto (Portugal) and University of Szeged (Hungary) have created a pilot European University called “European University Alliance for Global Health”, inspired by European values and committed to education for global challenges of health and well-being.


Coordinated by Université Paris-Saclay with the active involvement of all its member institutions, the project has been selected for the first European Universities call for proposals launched by the European Commission as part of the Erasmus+ programme.

 

The European alliance EUGLOH focuses on a unifying and transdisciplinary topic, global health, in order to deal with major societal challenges. The five universities thus aim to combine their expertise and resources to offer the best education to their students thanks to the excellence of their programmes and their cutting-edge research and equipment.


The objectives of this European University:

  • Train students on European values and citizenship, and at the same time on the emerging research areas linked to interdisciplinary societal challenges, and on transverse skills required for professional activities;
  • Create an integrated multicultural campus to increase students’ employability, mobility and adaptability to future challenges;
  • Build the European University of the future: innovative, interdisciplinary, inclusive and integrated in local research and innovation ecosystems.

SZTE Experience

Gizem Gültekin – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

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.

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.
