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.

Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.

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.
