Mission Statement

 

I consider the Chancellorship of the University of Szeged as the peak of my professional career since I am serving one of Hungary’s most prominent educational, research and health care institutions. It is in the mutual interest of Hungarian higher education and the country to implement development plans that will allow the University to obtain an increasing number of excellent positions in the international rankings of higher education institutions. In order to achieve these objectives, my principal duty is to contribute to the optimal, cost-efficient and transparent realisation of the fundamental tasks of the University, such as education, research and healthcare. Using the tools at my disposal, I intend to do this in compliance with the interests and expectations of the Ministry of National Resources and in close cooperation with the Rector.

 

As Chancellor of the University, I will do my best to ensure that education is developed in accordance with economic and social needs. My aim is to encourage outstanding academic achievement in the field of pure and applied research, and strengthen collaboration with industrial and external participants in order to increase the income of the University. As a Health Economist, my focus is the implementation of a healthcare system in Szeged and its region, which is in line with the requirements of the 21st century, and enhances the University’s ability to attract and retain experts.

SZTE Experience

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
