Rector's Welcome

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.

SZTE Experience


Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."


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.
