Cultural life at the University of Szeged

Our annual cultural festivals offer over 500 programmes on average at more than 100 different venues; 320 participants enter the talent-spotting competitions organised by the university. We have 7 registered amateur artistic groups, such as choirs, theatre groups and symphonic orchestras.

The cultural events organised by the university complement perfectly the wide variety of cultural programmes sponsored by the city, as the festivals also attract audiences outside the university. Since 2000 the Autumn Cultural Festival, and since 2004 the University Spring have been held annually. At these exhilarating events students of the university can demonstrate their talents alongside famous artists at the various premieres, exhibitions and meetings.

The results and rankings of the athletes attending the University of Szeged clearly demonstrate that the institution is an active and successful participant in sporting events organised by universities worldwide. Furthermore, the sporting events that were held over previous years in the city also prove that the University of Szeged is among the best in the management of sports events. All these successes reflect the university’s general attitude, that is, besides scientific results, achievements in competitive and recreational sports are equally important parts of student life.

The events are organized by SZTE Cultural Office.

SZTE Experience

PhuongPhuong Thu Tran - Faculty of Economics - Business Administration and Management

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.

HardeepHardeep Kaur - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics - Biology PhD

Many of my Indian friends had already been studying here, and SZTE was very popular among them because of its quality education, research and the international community. Without any doubt I submitted my application for Biology PhD. Now, this city serves second home to me: beautiful, clean and modern at the same time carrying its ethnicity. Once I leave the city, I will miss everything about Szeged especially my friends and workplace.
