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


Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.


Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
