Outstanding International Student Satisfaction Award was awarded to the University of Szeged

Another international award recognized the education and university life of the University of Szeged. The awards were divided on the basis of the students' opinion.

The University of Szeged has received Outstanding International Student Satisfaction Award in 2014 by Study Portals, the International Study Choice platform. University students from all around Europe have the opportunity to express their opinion and rate their universities. The participating international students ranked the University of Szeged between 9.5 and 10 which resulted in the significant honour.


Some comments on the University of Szeged:

“Comparing to my own country, which is Estonia, it is not expensive to live there. The accommodation in the city centre is rather cheap than expensive. Food and other living costs are in general normal, not expensive. The public transport was free for students there, it made the living costs less expensive.”


“I would recommend this university and city, because there are many international students who are not Erasmus students. The city is very sweet and student-friendly. The university has a great library with good range of books from different fields.”


“I would recommend this particular university because it's one of the best from Central Europe and I would recommend the city because it is a universities city and it offers a lot of opportunities to for academic, cultural, social and night life.”



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 live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.
