SZTE Experience

JoseJose Eges - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics

I’m from Ecuador and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder in my second year. I chose University of Szeged because of its highly ranked status in Hungary. I like the generosity of the people and the fantastic university facilities. The student environment is very relaxing, and you learn a lot from the cultural diversity. The student mentors are helpful. Professors and members of faculty staff are very approachable to guide and support you with academic challenges. Life in Szeged is exciting, and my favorite spot is the bank of Tisza River. The landscape of the bridge across the river and the beachside perspective is a beauty. I do enjoy the good academic system, and friendly environment.

Instructors are professionals and well-qualified; students are nice and open towards foreign cultures. Events organised by the faculties are pleasant and help with integration as well as provide the opportunity to get new acquaintances and friends.
