Another successful semester of the GATEWAY Chinese-Hungarian Exchange Program

On 24th of Mai 2019, the „Gateway” Chinese-Hungarian Student Exchange Program finished another successful semester.

6 Chinese students received their certificates, as the result of their hard work during the semester, at the closing ceremony. The students arrived from the following universities to study in our institute: Shanghai University of Political Science and Law, Beijing Foreign Studies University and Northwest University.


Our Faculty and the Program were represented by Norbert Varga PhD, Associate Dean for Scientific Affairs, the Program Director of the “Gateway” and Tamás Pongó PhD, Co-coordinator of the Program.

On behalf of the Confucius Institute, Dr. Wang Lei, the Chinese Director of the Institute, and Mr. Richard Mohr, the Hungarian Director of the Institute, welcomed the students and acknowledged the success of this Program. Furthermore, the teachers of the Faculty also honored the event with their presence.


Following the formal part of the ceremony, the students and their teachers took a picture in front of the Faculty Council Room, thereby symbolizing the strong cooperation between the two countries.

The guest students expressed their good feelings about our program, our university, our city. Moreover, they acknowledged that they will return to China with significantly more knowledge in the field of law. Such feedback represents the hallmark of the persistent and successful work of our educators and organizers.

SZTE Experience


Tamerlan Mendybayev – Faculty of Agriculture

My name is Tamerlan Mendybayev. I am from capital of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan. Currently I am first year student at the Faculty of Agriculture. I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.

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
