Some of the student opinion of University of Szeged:

„University of Szeged is a quality institution with interesting subjects, helpful teachers and a lot of international students.”

“Most lectures were very (or even too) understandable to the Erasmus students.”

„The social life of the city itself. It is not a very big city but it is full of young people due to its famous university. The amount of Erasmus students was big as well, so the social life and the relationships you can make were the best part.”

„I really enjoyed lessons there. Mostly because there were not too many students (10/15) and so the lessons were more interactive than in my home country.”

„For me, I was going to laboratories and they were very helpful. Also most of the exams are like discussion. Its better then classic exams :)”

“For students, especially from Western European Countries, prices are comparable cheap (especially rent, alcohol, eating at a restaurant) I found the food prices in the supermarket similar to the one in Germany, it is cheaper (and much more interesting) to buy on the local markets.”


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.
