SZTE Experience


SantiagoSantiago Vallejo - Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

I’m from Ecuador and a Ph.D. student from the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship program. I first heard about the University of Szeged on the internet. The general study environment is nice and student life in the city is lovely. With my program and the academic system, I can control my time which is a plus. The city is very affordable, and I live in the city center. One of my favorite extra-curricular activities is the Hungarian cultural programs. I have so many favorite spots, but parks are top on the list. The professors and staffs are very approachable. The mentors and classmates also did an excellent job to explore and know the city better. I hope to continue my career as a professor, and I would recommend the university to friends because it is, in general, a beautiful place.

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.
