New Ranking of Universities: Eight Hungarian Institutions Make the List

Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) has published a new ranking of universities, this time rating those of the emerging European and Central Asian countries. Eight Hungarian universities made the list of 2018, SZTE is ranked as the best among them.

SZTE ranked 27th, the Budapest University of Economics and Technology 28th, and the Eötvös Loránd University came in 30th in QS’ EECA regional ranking 2018 that was published this week. The University of Debrecen ranked 35th, the Corvinus University of Budapest 45th, the University of Pécs 63rd, but the University of Miskolc and the University of West Hungary also made the list and ranked 110th and 201st-250th respectively. The latter’s faculties operate as part of the University of Sopron and the Eötvös Loránd University following this year’s partition.

Russian Universities are the Most Successful

 

Quacquarelli Symonds has been editing this list since 2014. Among others it compares "emerging” European and Central Asian universities, which –according to experts – can’t compete with US and British universities leading global rankings for a number of different reasons (such as being in a traditional elite university).

Just like last year, Lomonosov Moscow State University came in first this year, followed by Novosibirsk State University and the biggest and oldest higher education institution of Estonia, the University of Tartu.

Saint Petersburg University, Charles University of Prague, the Czech Technical University in Prague, the University of Warsaw, Boğaziçi University and the Middle East Technical University in Turkey, and the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University have made it into the top 10.

Ranking Criterias

Universities were ranked based on eight different criteria including academic reputation, recognition on the labor market, faculty/student ratio, foreign students/professors ratio, the institution’s online visibility and the number of PhD professors.

SZTE Experience

Tamerlan Mendybayev – Faculty of Agriculture

My name is Tamerlan Mendybayev. I am from capital of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan. Currently I am first year student at the Faculty of Agriculture. I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."
