Szeged is situated in the South-East part of Hungary. It is easily accessible by rail or road from most major Hungarian cities. Budapest is 175 km away.


ARRIVAL IN HUNGARY


By Air

You will arrive at 2A terminal of Liszt Ferenc Airport. Close to this terminal you can find the Ferihegy Railway Station (Budapest Airport), where you can buy your train ticket to Szeged.

Between terminal 2A and Ferihegy Railway Station there is the bus 200E. You have to buy a ticket to use this bus. You can buy it on the bus for 450 HUF, or at terminal 2A for 350 HUF. In the terminal you can find an automated ticket machine (like an ATM) at the exit, where you can buy single-way tickets.

SZTE Experience

My first impression about Szeged was, that it is „a standard lovely Western city. You can see colourful buildings everywhere; enjoy the sunshine, walk in the nature, study in the bright, high-tech library”. I think this is a perfect place for students where they can experience sparkling culture diversity, enjoy the peacefulness of everyday life, meet a lot of kind and motivating people, enjoy the inspiring academic atmosphere, taste the food not only from Hungary but also from the world. I can call Szeged my second home.

I’m from Ecuador and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder in my second year. I chose University of Szeged because of its highly ranked status in Hungary. I like the generosity of the people and the fantastic university facilities. The student environment is very relaxing, and you learn a lot from the cultural diversity. The student mentors are helpful. Professors and members of faculty staff are very approachable to guide and support you with academic challenges. Life in Szeged is exciting, and my favorite spot is the bank of Tisza River. The landscape of the bridge across the river and the beachside perspective is a beauty. I do enjoy the good academic system, and friendly environment.
