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.
