The Cooperation between SZTE and Shangai University of Political Science and Law is Continuing

Rector Prof. Gábor Szabó and Yin’e Zhou Vice Rector for Education agreed on the enlargement and carrying-on of the educational and research cooperation launched in 2012 between the University of Szeged and the Shangai University of Political Science and Law (SHUPL) in November.

The aformentioned cooperation constituted a ground for the establishment of Gateway programme, which is basically an exchange programme for students. 8 Chinese students started their studies at the Faculty of Law of SZTE within the framework of Gateway in the first fall semester of the initiative in 2012; students keep arriving from term to term and their number increased to 39 in the fall semester of 2017.

 

The programme is dynamically developing, the number of Chinese students in Szeged and of partner institutions cooperating with SZTE is continously rising. The delegation of SHUPL arrived to Szeged not only to have the present contract extended, but also to discuss the possibilities of the enlargement of the collaboration.

 

The growing number of Chinese students provided a reason to extend the cooperation with Chinese universities: scholars arriving from the Shanghai International Studies University, the Northwest University, the Northwest University of Political Science and Law and the Xi’an Polytechnic University had the chance to study the Hungarian and the European law system. According to the current planning, the East China University of Political Science and Law will also send foreign students to Szeged.

Students participating in the course of the Faculty of Law are studying legal English, European legislation and also attend classes about the Hungarian culture and language. Facultative subjects have a wide range: introduction to international law, intellectual property protection, criminal law, administration, economic relations within the European Union, human rights and the operation of international organizations can be studied.

The Faculty of Law of SZTE has the intention to establish an even wider cooperation between partner institutions and hopefully students from Szeged can also enter part-time courses in China.

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

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.
