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

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.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
