1. Document Check

Newly admitted students should visit their Faculty in order to have their data checked by presenting the original academic and identity documents (if not sent to the Faculty in advance). At the end of this process enrolled students sign their Academic Registration Sheet and receive their Neptun Code/ID.

2. Neptun Registration & Course Registration

Neptun is an online system with many functions. In order to have access to the online system you will be provided with a NEPTUN code upon registration. The first step is to log in to the system by using the data indicated on your Academic Registration Sheet. You will use Neptun to register for your subjects, exam dates and in some cases even to settle your finances. Your exam grades will also appear on the Neptun system along with your class schedule, gradebook and many others.


In order to gain active student status, it is required to register for at least one course in the given semester in Neptun.

    I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.

    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.
