From Festivals to Festivals in the Spirit of Culture

The core activity of a higher education institution is education, scientific research and artistic work. The SZTE Cultural Office was set up to run university art groups and to encourage creative activities of the university citizens.


The task of the Cultural Office is to organize cultural life at the University of Szeged (SZTE), to coordinate the work of art groups, to cultivate cultural relations within the institution and between the SZTE and the city as well as organizing events. The activity of the office helps to develop the creative capacities of the university citizens.


The Autumn Cultural Festival and the University Spring are both special events of the SZTE. In addition, the Cultural Office announces competitions and workshops for students and employees of the university (in the fields of music, photography, poetry, diary, and drama writing and others) in every semester to urge them to fulfil their creativity. These competitions are important because they make it possible for students to demonstrate their talents in different fields, and they can display skills that would not be revealed otherwise during their studies.

SZTE Experience

My name is Olney Rodrigues de Oliveira and I am from Brazil. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies in the Doctoral School of Education at SZTE. I chose the University of Szeged because it’s one of the best universities in Europe, especially in the field of education. I personally love Szeged because it is safe and I love the architecture, the cultural events, the local Market Mars Tér and so many other beautiful destinations. For my studies I wanted to have an excellent university in a good quality life city and Szeged offers me that. It’s neither too big nor too small, I can ride my bike to go to my classes and practically everything is within a walking distance. I would advise the prospective students to enjoy the city during their stay, the cultural and historical events, know other international students and make a lot of friends, visit other cities in Hungary and make good memories. I am pretty sure that you will be proud of this priceless experience. Before coming to Hungary I worked several years as a teacher. I love the academic environment, the libraries, relationship with students and the feeling to be involved in the acquisition of new knowledge. That is why I plan to be part of a University as a professor as well as to keep researching in different aspects of the process of education. I am so thankful to be here and I believe that the Universe brought me to Szeged because the city and the University are the experience that I need in my life now.

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.
