The University of Szeged–a Research University of National Excellence–decided to participate in the Institutional Evaluation Program of the European Universities Association (EUA-IEP) in the Academic year of 2013/2014. With this step, the University of Szeged follows the spirit of internationalization. The evaluation process begins with an institute evaluation process conducted by the institution itself. This is followed by two on-site visits in March and April 2014 by an evaluation team and ended with a drafting of a final report by the evaluation team highlighting good practices, identifying and proposing recommendations for improvement. This report is the result of the evaluation of the University of Szeged.

According to report the USS is a University of National Excellence, an institution with a long and rich history, with a clear and ambitious mission which it is highly committed to achieve. Its strong leadership is determined to maintain and reinforce the university’s capacity and attractively. In this report, the evaluation team recommend to the USZ among others: enhance communication between the central and the faculty level, rationalise and strengthen the services provided across the university with consideration towards reaching a deeper level of cohesion, alignment in institutional mission and purposes, offering additional support where required, at central and faculty level, reinforce and strengthen the cooperation between and across faculties, building on existing synergies and good practices, improve the infrastructure to enhance the experience of students in the university e.g. sports facilities, dormitories and develop an internationalisation strategy that would increase the synergy and the coordination between the centre and the faculties in reaching the internationalisation goals.


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.

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.
