Dear Visitors,

Welcome to the homepage of the University of Szeged!

Prof. Dr. Rovó László rektor

The University of Szeged is a prestigious Hungarian institution, with its 12 faculties offering quality education across the whole spectrum of higher education. Our institution is one of the largest educational complexes in Hungary, where about 22,000 students, including nearly 5,000 international students, are enriching their knowledge.

Every year our University achieves excellent results in various international rankings of higher education institutions. In the British Quacquarelli Symonds ranking, our University was ranked 551-560 in 2021, which is the best result in Hungary.

The University of Szeged has been part of the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH) since 2019. This initiative brings together five universities from across Europe. Combining their outstanding expertise in Global Health, EUGLOH will build the European University of the future.

The mission of our University – which is inseparable from teaching - is to maintain its internationally competitive research university character and to ensure European quality in medical work. In addition, the University of Szeged, as one of the largest institutions in the region, plays an active role in its social, economic and cultural development

Our intention is to evolve from a regional-level institution into a leading European university. Building on the University's research and development potential, we seek to meet the educational, research and arts promoting requirements of the 21st century with the development of the teaching hospitals and the establishment of a Science Park around the ELI-ALPS Research Centre.
