We intend to continue with the developing and constructing work launched by Kunó Klebelsberg. In the Institution Building Plan of the University, we set ourselves the goal of adhering to the labour market’s expectations both in the content and in the methodology in regional, national and international context in order to ensure that the University of Szeged becomes a competitive institution providing competency-based and practice-oriented knowledge in all horizons of our study programmes and scientific fields.

The rapid University developments conducted between 1926 and 1930 launched by Kunó Klebelsberg are worth around 80 billion HUF at today’s prices. Developments that started in 2018 could be even apostrophed as Plan Klebelsberg II. Our priority is to develop education, research, healthcare services as well as third mission activities including social responsibility. Developments worth billions of forints – financed by own, governmental and EU sources – involves the buildings of the Faculty of Music, the Faculty of Law and Political Sciences, the former Department of Infectious Diseases at the Paediatrician Clinic, the building housing the Oto- Rhyno- and Laryngology Clinic and the building of the future and so called ‘Theoretical Block’ of the Medical and Health Sciences Programmes. For the continuation of the line of clinics construction, the Life Sciences Centre will be prepared, opening up new perspectives for healthcare and informatics-related study programmes. The above mentioned broad range of infrastructural investments and structural improvements define the long-term future of the entire university.

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.

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.
