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.

Learn about the Neptun online system here.


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

Tamerlan Mendybayev – Faculty of Agriculture

My name is Tamerlan Mendybayev. I am from capital of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan. Currently I am first year student at the Faculty of Agriculture. I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."
