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


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."


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.
