III. Joint SZTE Blood Donation at the TIK

A year ago, the members of the University of Szeged were asked to help saving 300 lives together. Last year's blood donation produced an unexpected success: 171 blood donors contributed to saving 513 lives. After the extremely successful blood donations, university citizens are again asked to come and help saving lives by donating blood: on the 100th day of the year, voluntary blood donors are awaited on the 10th April at the József Attila Study and Information Centre.

On the 10th of April, between 10:00 am and 17:00 pm, at the József Attila Study and Information Center they are waiting for all current and first blood donors - and now the University of Szeged wants to set the bar even higher: hoping that the University of Szeged will be among the first to receive the ‘Blood Donation-Friendly Higher Education Institution’ title!

You can book an appointment on the website of the National Blood Supply Service. Documents are required for blood donation: address card, an ID with a recognizable photo and TAJ card. Before donating blood, it is suggested that you have breakfast and drink plenty of fluids.

The organizers aprecciate the blood donors’ time with a gift package, including a discount coupon offered by Király Zöldség, a discount coupon offered by UrbanGo "Trekking adventure in downtown Szeged", a Mórahalom spa entrance ticket, a 500 forint Erzsébet voucher, water and chocolate. Besides, blood donors will also have the chance to win valuable gifts at 17:00 pm. Three packages of Wine nets will find their lucky owner, two Classic Cafe gift cards worth 5,000 Ft each, two Lucky Pizzeria gift vouchers and three SZTE gift packages.

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
