SZTE Experience

I chose the University of Szeged, because it has a very good international reputation. When I previously checked the website of the University I liked the fact that Szeged is not too big and too small. I received a lot of help from the ESN mentors. I like Hungary and Szeged a lot and I’m enjoying my classes. When I have free time I go jogging, or play foosball with my friends. In Szeged I really love Süti, nem süti, the river and TIK, because it is just perfect place to study: specious place with full of students and books.

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.
