Exhibition of Foreign Students’ Portraits

An exhibition entitled ’Faces of SZTE’ was opened on the 24th of October in József Attila Study and Information Centre. The portraits made by Anna Bobkó – the photo reporter of the University of Szeged – give an insight into the multicultural milieu of the institution.

According to official data from the Ministry of Education, the University of Szeged is the third most popular university among foreign students in the rural country. While 2,632 foreign students enrolled in the Academic Year of 2015-2016, their number rose to 3,208 in the following year. Students are coming from all corners of the world: from Canada to South Africa; from Bolivia to China and from all the continents. Indonesia, Guinea, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Jamaica are just a few of the countries represented in the student body. The portraits of Anna Bobkó give an insider’s view of the multicultural life at SZTE.

 

The opening event of the exhibition also provided an opportunity for the foreign students to get to know each other; Prof. Dr. Katalin Nagy, Vice Rector for International Affairs addressed a celebratory opening speech.

SZTE Experience

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.

I am a PhD student and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder from the Philippines. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Science and I happen to be in my 3rd year of studies. I chose University of Szeged because its one of the top ranked research university in Hungary known for its good reputation in the fields of health and natural sciences. Coming from the Philippines with a warm climate, I had huge preference of Szeged for my studies, the city having the most rays of sunshine and considered to be the warmest place in Hungary. I would advise all the prospective students to join University of Szeged’s diverse and vibrant community! Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone, try to find and establish your niche in a new place like what I did. I didn’t regret coming to Szeged as it continuously provides me an enabling learning environment for various reasons, has affordable cost of living, very safe and calm university town, organized transport system, beautiful and clean surroundings with the very sightly Tisza River which adds to its appeal, and also holds many festivals throughout the year. After graduation, I am planning to go back to my home institution and continue my teaching duties at the University of the Philippines Los Baños
