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.

SZTE Experience


Tamerlan Mendybayev – Faculty of Agriculture

My name is Tamerlan Mendybayev. I am from capital of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan. Currently I am first year student at the Faculty of Agriculture. I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.


Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.
