Identical Appearance, Different Personalities – Meet The Mentor-Twins of SZTE

The Prekajac-sisters became mentors of the Erasmus Student Network after a year spent in Spain with Erasmus scholarship. Petra and Ella help Spanish-speaking students at the University of Szeged.

’We discuss what to wear and how to style our hair every single morning; we look identical, yet we are different in our identities’ says Ella. Petra is honest, open-minded, impatient and oversensitive, while her sister is precise, patient and funny.

The identical twins do almost everything together: they love dancing and singing, but their true passion is to help others. ’After having spent a year in Spain with Erasmus, we had to realize that we need so much help and assistance when one has to live abroad – this is the reason why we joined the ESN Szeged mentoring body to assist Spanish students. Mostly we help them in finding a flat, using the library as well as dealing with administrative issues. We also take part in organising several programmes for international students.’

SZTE Experience


PhuongPhuong Thu Tran - Faculty of Economics - Business Administration and Management

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.

I’m a Ph.D. student from Indonesia and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship student. I first heard about the University of Szeged from the Tempus Foundation university list with excellent program descriptions, and it caught my eyes. My student life has been a pleasant one because of the beautiful environment, and TIK library facility. The teachers and staffs are accommodating, and my mentors and classmates also contributed to exploring the city with pleasant memories. The city is very affordable, and I live in a shared flat very close to the city center. In my free time, I engage in sporting activities or watch movies. My favorite spot is the Dugonics square, but my best attraction is the Tisza River. The University of Szeged is a beautiful experience for me, and I will recommend it to my friends. I am happy to be part of the University of Szeged.
