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

93292160_608489396406408_4799535565693255680_oOlney Rodrigues - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

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.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
