SZTE Still Among the Greenest Universities in Hungary

The University of Szeged has improved its ’green’ indicators; according to the world ranking of GreenMetric, SZTE took the 88th place in 2017 – compared to the 107th place last year, moreover, a hundred times more institutions filled in the ’green’ form in this year’s survey. SZTE is on the 42nd place on the European Green-list and it is the greenest university among the Hungarian higher educational institutions.

The University of Szeged is the 88th on the GreenMetric list in 2017 out of 619 institutions of 76 countries. The popularity of the top list established by the Indonesian University is continuously growing: the first call in 2010 was addressed by 95 institutions from 34 countries, while 516 universities of 74 countries made their contribution in 2016.

 

Except for the University of Istanbul, only West European institutions came before SZTE on the GreenMetric list. Out of the top 7 ’greenest’ universities, 5 institutions are located in England – SZTE has been proved better than the 79% of the institution marked on the list of green universities in Europe.

 

Among the universities of Hungary, SZTE – with its 88th place – significantly beat the Hungarian field; the University of Pécs finished on the 179th, Eötvös Loránd University secured the 322nd place on the ’green’ list.

 

The evaluation focuses on the following main areas: location and infrastructure, waste disposal, energy and water management, transportation and education – according to the ranking by categories, SZTE is highly effective in waste disposal, getting 87% out of the maximum score; however, there is still room for improvement as for education to provide guidance in the future.

SZTE Experience

My first impression about Szeged was, that it is „a standard lovely Western city. You can see colourful buildings everywhere; enjoy the sunshine, walk in the nature, study in the bright, high-tech library”. I think this is a perfect place for students where they can experience sparkling culture diversity, enjoy the peacefulness of everyday life, meet a lot of kind and motivating people, enjoy the inspiring academic atmosphere, taste the food not only from Hungary but also from the world. I can call Szeged my second home.

I’m a Ph.D. student from Ghana and enrolled in a scholarship program. I heard about the university for the first time from a friend as a peaceful and friendly place to be. Indeed, the city of Szeged is a quiet, and peaceful place to live. My supervisor and HOD’S approach to teaching gives me a better insight and understanding of the program. The city is very friendly, and I go shopping and walking in my free time. The Dom square is a magnificent landmark, and the surrounding buildings are excellent reference points of a branded city of natural beauty. The most attractive place for me in Szeged is the zoo. Hungary is a beautiful country with the rivers such as the Danube, Tisza and the surrounding bridges. My expectations of the university and study environment keep improving by the day, and I’m delighted. I will recommend the university to because of the quality educational system for career development.
