Students with a Hungarian governmental scholarship are entitled to enjoy health care services in accordance with Act 53/1997 - (point i) of section (1) of paragraph 16 - and they are entitled to have a social security card ("TAJ card").

Scholarship holders need to formally request the public health insurance card (TAJ card) at the Office for Full-time Study Programmes (Rector’s Office – 6720 Szeged, Dugonics tér 13., room 45.)

 

What to do if the TAJ card expires?

If the TAJ card expires, scholarship holders need to return the old TAJ card to the Office and they need to apply for a new TAJ card - if they are still eligible for a TAJ card. Please request a new TAJ card at the Office for Full-time Study Programmes (Rector’s Office – 6720 Szeged, Dugonics tér 13. room 45) It is free of charge to request a new TAJ card.

Step 1: Required documents:

Make sure to hand in the copy of the following documents:

Step 3: Pick up your TAJ card

You will be informed when the TAJ card is issued and you are asked to take it in person in the Office for Full-time Study Programmes in the Rector’s Office.

 

NOTE! The health insurance card can only be used with a valid passport; therefore, it is particularly important that the insured should carry both the health insurance card and his/her passport at all times.

SZTE Experience

Many of my Indian friends had already been studying here, and SZTE was very popular among them because of its quality education, research and the international community. Without any doubt I submitted my application for Biology PhD. Now, this city serves second home to me: beautiful, clean and modern at the same time carrying its ethnicity. Once I leave the city, I will miss everything about Szeged especially my friends and workplace.
