University blood donation on the 100th day of the year

It is of the utmost importance for the University of Szeged that the citizens of the university make a difference in the community, the city where they live, study and work. Therefore, on April 10, 2018, on the 100th day of the year, they attempt to call attention to the importance of regular blood donation with more than one hundred successful blood donations.

Citizens of the university - students, teachers and staff - can donate blood at the SZTE TIK (Attila József Educational and Information Centre, Szeged, Ady tér 10.) from 10 am to 5 pm on April 10, the 100th day of the year. The blood donors may make an appointment on the http://www.ovsz.hu/idopontfogas website, but they can donate blood without pre-registration as well. A total of 10 beds will be used for donation, of which 2 beds will be set aside for those without registration.


Everyone who is over 18 years of age can participate in the blood donation, including foreign students if they come with a Hungarian TAJ (social security) and address card. These two must be presented at the donation together with an ID card or a passport.

Blood donors will receive valuable gifts: a ticket to the St. Elizabeth Bath in Mórahalom, a discount coupon for the Borháló wine shop and a pair of SZTE sunglasses. The first 150 blood donors will also receive a discount ticket to AquaPolis Napfény Bath.


Valuable prizes will be raffled among the participants at the end of the blood donation at 5.15 pm. The main prize is a trip offered by Proko Travel. In addition, the following prizes will be raffled: the gift of Borháló Wine Shop, some pizza from Lucky Pizzeria, and a dinner for two at the Classic Café.


The blood donation is organized by the National Blood Supply Service and the University of Szeged with the no secret purpose of saving at least 300 lives on this day.

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 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.
