24th Autumn Cultural Festival at the University of Szeged

The popular series of events, called Autumn Cultural Festival, organized every autumn is about to start at the University of Szeged, between 1st October and 10th November, at 75 different venues, with over 300 programs.

Directorate for International and Public Affairs’ Culture Office of the SZTE organizes the art festival of the university this year as well. The aim of the month-long series of events is to provide popular artisans and students with acting skills with the opportunity to introduce their work for the university and its audience.

The programme of the festival is prepared in such a way that the largest possible cultural scale is offered for all age groups and interests. Diversity is a core value of this year’s festival too: concerts of popular and classical music, educational lectures, performances and open days, movie nights and book promotion events, conversations on literature and public issues. In addition to diversity, other aspects, such as professionalism, transmission of values and community building based on cultural experiences are also important.

The festival’s official opening is a special light painting event and photo exhibition of Anna Fenyvesi, head of the Institute of English and American Studies of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Atrium of the Rector’s Office on the 1st October, Tuesday at 18:30. The incredibly popular ’Poet at noon’ programme series are also to be continued, where participants cite their favourite poets in front of the Rector’s Office on each working day. Theatre-fans will have the opportunity to meet Géza Bereményi, Dorottya Udvaros and Krisztián Grecsó. Among others, concerts of Ági Herczku and the Band, Flora Tandi and Flóra Olasz, Zűrös Band, Cimbaliban and Dóra Danics, Fool Moon and Edina Mókus Szirtes will be offered, along with exhibitions, for example, of painter Lajos Bakacsi and photographer János Gyeviki.

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

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."
