Szeged is chosen to be one of the most enriching and inspirational cities of Europe

We are happy to announce that Szeged is among the best European cultural and creative cities, listed on the Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor of the European Commission. The online platform is a new tool to monitor and assess the performance of 'Cultural and Creative Cities' in Europe vis-à-vis their peers.

Szeged is highlighted by its four cultural and creative features: its higher education institution: the University of Szeged, its Szeged Open-Air Festival, its TheAlter Festival and its cultural events organized by the Cultural Office of the Universit.


The University of Szeged as the regional centre of education and one of the most distinguished universities in Hungary attracts thousands of students - not only from Hungary but also from abroad.


Szeged Open-Air Festival, which is celebrating its 85th anniversary, has recently been awarded the label of Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe. Since 1931 the open air theatre festival is the chief tourist draw and the iconic event of the city.


TheAlter is the oldest international theatre festival in Hungary and a forum of independent and alternative theatres.


The cultural events organised by the university and sponsored by the city include the Autumn and Spring Festivals, where students and well-known artists demonstrate their talents.

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.

My name is Olney Rodrigues de Oliveira and I am from Brazil. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies in the Doctoral School of Education at SZTE. I chose the University of Szeged because it’s one of the best universities in Europe, especially in the field of education. I personally love Szeged because it is safe and I love the architecture, the cultural events, the local Market Mars Tér and so many other beautiful destinations. For my studies I wanted to have an excellent university in a good quality life city and Szeged offers me that. It’s neither too big nor too small, I can ride my bike to go to my classes and practically everything is within a walking distance. I would advise the prospective students to enjoy the city during their stay, the cultural and historical events, know other international students and make a lot of friends, visit other cities in Hungary and make good memories. I am pretty sure that you will be proud of this priceless experience. Before coming to Hungary I worked several years as a teacher. I love the academic environment, the libraries, relationship with students and the feeling to be involved in the acquisition of new knowledge. That is why I plan to be part of a University as a professor as well as to keep researching in different aspects of the process of education. I am so thankful to be here and I believe that the Universe brought me to Szeged because the city and the University are the experience that I need in my life now.
