The Confucius Institute at the University of Szeged was officially opened in the autumn of 2012 as a result of cooperation between the University of Szeged and the Shanghai International Studies University with the support of Hanban (Confucius Institute Headquarters). For those interested in learning Chinese as a foreign language the Institute offers language classes taught by professional Chinese language teachers. Language classes are held both at the classrooms of the Confucius Institute and of the different faculty buildings of the university. Besides language teaching, the Institute emphasises the importance of introducing Chinese culture to a wide audience: the Institute organises a great variety of exciting programs free to attend by the public.
The University Library integrates the infrastructure of every faculty and department. In the Centre there is room for more than a thousand students, making it the largest in the country. The four open levels of shelves contain 350.000 volumes and a further 1,5 million volumes and journals in storage.
The Congress Centre was opened to the public in December 2004. The Congress Centre (which is unique in the East European region) provides a venue for university and business programmes as well as cultural and charity events (concerts, exhibitions).
The web page of the Sports Centre provides information about the completion of courses, associations supervising the sporting life of the university, sports institutions and projects.
The University Computer Centre provides central IT services for the University of Szeged, including help desk and application management (Neptun).
The first – formal – step of the higher educational integration was the establishment of a central service office, which is capable of providing high level integrated services.
We provide help for the student community in tackling life management difficulties. We offer our counselling services for all active students of the University of Szeged for five sessions free of charge upon registration.
The university-level representation of the students is provided by the Students’ Union. The main task of the Students Union and the students’ movement is to identify the problems of faculties and departments and synthesize them in a manner which helps the students to step up united and effectively, on institutional or even wider platforms.
To make university citizens feel the lifelong support of the institution, the Alma Mater Office is there to maintain contact with former students.
The University of Szeged Career Office functions as a mediator between the students and the labour market. During their training students can improve their skills; thus the office helps the students’ preparation for seeking jobs.
In the shop various products with SZTE and faculty logos, emblems and blazons, Hungarian and English inscriptions can be purchased.
Students can obtain their notes through the Book Shops of the University of Szeged, where they can use their student card.
The Jate Klub offering colourful programmes to the students of Szeged.

SZTE Experience

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.

I am a PhD student and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder from the Philippines. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Science and I happen to be in my 3rd year of studies. I chose University of Szeged because its one of the top ranked research university in Hungary known for its good reputation in the fields of health and natural sciences. Coming from the Philippines with a warm climate, I had huge preference of Szeged for my studies, the city having the most rays of sunshine and considered to be the warmest place in Hungary. I would advise all the prospective students to join University of Szeged’s diverse and vibrant community! Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone, try to find and establish your niche in a new place like what I did. I didn’t regret coming to Szeged as it continuously provides me an enabling learning environment for various reasons, has affordable cost of living, very safe and calm university town, organized transport system, beautiful and clean surroundings with the very sightly Tisza River which adds to its appeal, and also holds many festivals throughout the year. After graduation, I am planning to go back to my home institution and continue my teaching duties at the University of the Philippines Los Baños
