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

The University of Szeged is a well-known and internationally ranked institution in Hungary and worldwide. It is such a wonderful experience to study here. Instructors are professionals and well-qualified; students are nice and open towards foreign cultures. Events organised by the faculties are pleasant and help with integration as well as provide the opportunity to get new acquaintances and friends.

I’m a Ph.D. student from Indonesia and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship student. I first heard about the University of Szeged from the Tempus Foundation university list with excellent program descriptions, and it caught my eyes. My student life has been a pleasant one because of the beautiful environment, and TIK library facility. The teachers and staffs are accommodating, and my mentors and classmates also contributed to exploring the city with pleasant memories. The city is very affordable, and I live in a shared flat very close to the city center. In my free time, I engage in sporting activities or watch movies. My favorite spot is the Dugonics square, but my best attraction is the Tisza River. The University of Szeged is a beautiful experience for me, and I will recommend it to my friends. I am happy to be part of the University of Szeged.
