What to Do in Case of a Health Problem

Necessary steps and contact details. Please, always keep your Hungarian health insurance card (’TAJ kártya’) with you.

If you seek medical attention and need help, please contact your local, Hungarian-speaking mentor who can help you with finding a doctor. Before you ask for a treatment, please always ask whether your insurence covers the service by showing your TAJ card (otherwise a meeting with the doctor might have some costs.) If necessary your GP (at your student hostel, or the one designated to the area you live) may redirect you to a specialist for special treatment. Prescribed medicines can be bought at any pharmacies with the prescription from the doctor.

 

In case of emergency, do not hesitate to visit a medical emergency service ("ügyelet”). In urgent cases, you will receive the medical treatment. It is suggested to keep your passport, residence permit, a copy of student status certificate and a copy of the accommodation reporting form with you.

 

With dental issues first go to the Dental Clinic („Fogklinika” / Faculty of Dentistry, Szeged, Tisza Lajos krt. 64 – 66.) with your Hungarian mentor and find out which dental district you belong to, then visit your designated dentist. Basic treatments are for free with your TAJ card, but more complex dental treatments are to be paid by the patient.

SZTE Experience


JoseJose Eges - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics

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.

I’m from Brazil, but I feel very comfortable in Szeged. Attending the courses, I acquired thorough knowledge, which was helped by the well-equipped labs, and the modern library of the University. Despite the hustle and bustle, the town is still safe, the quality of life is considerably high, and we receive every assistance to fit in, such as excellent program administration or help searching for accommodations.
