One of the strategic priorities of the University of Szeged is the internationalisation of its higher education structure. The three international offices of the Directorate for International & Public Relations work to promote student and faculty mobility and to deepen and expand international cooperation in the fields of education-research-innovation.
Extensive inter-university international relations contribute to improving the quality of education, broadening the outlook of academia and successful preparing students for the labour market. SZTE provides a multicultural environment for all of its students through various mobility and scholarship schemes, and also cultural and language programmes. Many of its lecturers have international experience, which they use in both education and research.
The international reputation of SZTE is proven by the fact that the number of international students studying at SZTE is increasing year by year as well as the number of its bilateral international inter-university collaborations, and also the university is highly ranked in international higher education rankings. The University of Szeged has been an active member of the international higher education system since the 1980s, and its place in this framework is becoming more and more important every year.
