Project Participated By SZTE Seeks Answers to Global Health Issues

Participants of the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH) have recently consulted in Paris.

Participants of the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH) have recently consulted in Paris. Around 120 representatives of the University of Szeged, Ludwig-Maximilian University Munich (Germany), Lund University (Sweden), Porto University (Portugal) and Paris-Saclay University (France) are working on the shaping of the future of the European higher education.


The University of Szeged, which was ranked among the top 2% of world’s universities, cooperates with Ludwig-Maximilian University, Lund University, Porto University and Paris-Saclay University within the framework of a consortium of the EUGLOH tender receiving subsidies for 3 years. Consortium members were consulting on the details of the project between 13th and 14th September at Paris-Saclay University.


Partners of the project are prominent European universities are now provided with the opportunity to cooperate and create a novel university structure within the European Union, a student and staff mobility scheme, or even joint curricula and modules. Flexible curricula would allow students to obtain an European degree as well as the customization of studies: students would be able to choose when and where to continue their studies. Approximately 200.000 students are studying at the partner institutions, therefore the aim is to have at least half of the students and staff to participate in mobility programs until 2025.


Health constitutes the backbone of the program of EUGLOH that can be joined by any unit of partnering universities, both in terms of education as well as joint research programs. With the implementation of long-term strategy, the Alliance promotes European values and identity, increases the mobility of university students and staff and improves the quality of European higher education.


’A considerable impact will be made on the future of the University of Szeged with participating in this project. We contributed to the success of this scheme with our experience in internationalization and European Union cooperations’ said Prof. Dr. László Rovó. The Rector of the University of Szeged highlighted: owing to the EUGLOH project, the institution may offer even more targeted Erasmus exchange programs, rankings of the University of Szeged may be improved and a multinational and European supercampus might be established in the future. By doing so, the University of Szeged may become one of the leading Mid-European universities.

SZTE Experience

simsonSimson Ndadaleka Shaakumeni - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences - PhD Studies

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.

I’m a Ph.D. student from Ghana and enrolled in a scholarship program. I heard about the university for the first time from a friend as a peaceful and friendly place to be. Indeed, the city of Szeged is a quiet, and peaceful place to live. My supervisor and HOD’S approach to teaching gives me a better insight and understanding of the program. The city is very friendly, and I go shopping and walking in my free time. The Dom square is a magnificent landmark, and the surrounding buildings are excellent reference points of a branded city of natural beauty. The most attractive place for me in Szeged is the zoo. Hungary is a beautiful country with the rivers such as the Danube, Tisza and the surrounding bridges. My expectations of the university and study environment keep improving by the day, and I’m delighted. I will recommend the university to because of the quality educational system for career development.
