European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH)

EUGLOH_logoUniversité 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.

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."

My name is Olney Rodrigues de Oliveira and I am from Brazil. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies in the Doctoral School of Education at SZTE. I chose the University of Szeged because it’s one of the best universities in Europe, especially in the field of education. I personally love Szeged because it is safe and I love the architecture, the cultural events, the local Market Mars Tér and so many other beautiful destinations. For my studies I wanted to have an excellent university in a good quality life city and Szeged offers me that. It’s neither too big nor too small, I can ride my bike to go to my classes and practically everything is within a walking distance. I would advise the prospective students to enjoy the city during their stay, the cultural and historical events, know other international students and make a lot of friends, visit other cities in Hungary and make good memories. I am pretty sure that you will be proud of this priceless experience. Before coming to Hungary I worked several years as a teacher. I love the academic environment, the libraries, relationship with students and the feeling to be involved in the acquisition of new knowledge. That is why I plan to be part of a University as a professor as well as to keep researching in different aspects of the process of education. I am so thankful to be here and I believe that the Universe brought me to Szeged because the city and the University are the experience that I need in my life now.
