SZTE organizes Summer University in Hungarian Studies

The Hungarian Studies Center of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Szeged has organized the 17th annual Summer University for international students interested in Hungarian language and culture.

About forty students coming from all corners of the world are expected to join the program. The Summer University was founded in 2001 in order to introduce the Hungarian language and culture to citizens of other countries. Students are coming among others from the United States, Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia, Israel, India, China, Japan, Germany, Slovakia, Serbia and Russia to participate in the four-week program.


Hungarian language is instructed at five levels and morning language classes are followed by language practice classes and lectures on Hungarian history, literature, film and art history. The leisure and recreation activities are also wide-ranging: in addition to touring the noteworthy sites of Szeged, students can participate in Hungarian film evenings as well.


One of the most popular events at the Summer University is the International Evening (Nemzetközi Est). For this students introduce their countries by preparing traditional food, teaching a folk song or dance, or in some other way.


Many students return from previous years, and some of them even stay for a whole year to continue learning the Hungarian language or to study at the University of Szeged in a degree program.

Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.

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.
