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.

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.

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
