SZTE Enters a Memorandum of Understanding with Chinese University

Representatives of the University of Szeged and Southwest University of Political Science and Law signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 22 July 2019. As a result of the agreement, student and faculty exchange, joint research programs and degree programs are planned to be introduced.

International relations have always been considered as a priority at the University of Szeged. The SZTE have ties with international stakeholders, but in order to remain among the top 500 best universities in the world, its international network needs to be expanded.

’In the last decades, we focused mainly on Western Europe and the United States in terms of the establishment of cooperations. Nonetheless, it should be pointed out that owing to today’s economics, scientific and industrial processes, development centres of the world are rather concentrated in the Far Eastern region; China is one of the most outstanding example of this’ said Prof. Dr. László Rovó, rector of the University of Szeged during the ceremonial signing event. ’It is also foreseen that new relationships need to be established in this region and the expansion of international network must be continued. It is my utmost pleasure to announce that the number of cooperations in law and political science has been increased with the signing of this Memorandum of Understanding. Our commitment towards China shall be illustrated by the fact that we are about to open a China Centre bringing together our Chinese relationships.’

Fu Zitang, rector of the Southwest University of Political Science and Law said that it was a great pleasure to enter an agreement with the University of Szeged, as the Hungarian institution has a centuries-old tradition of research and talent nurturing, and it still plays an important role in the Hungarian higher education.

The initiators of this agreement were the Faculty of Law and Political Science and the Faculty of Economics of the SZTE. Both Faculties are committed towards internationalization, therefore both of them have a broad network of international partners, including prominent Chinese partners as well. Foremost among these is GATEWAY program hosting incoming Chinese students taught by teachers from the abovementioned Faculties.

The content of the Memorandum of Understanding were detailed by Dr. Norbert Varga, Vice Dean for General Affairs of the Faculty of Law and Political Science. The primary objective of the cooperation is to strengthen Chinese-Hungarian relationships; in addition, the expansion of student and faculty exchange may be implemented within the framework of the agreement. Shaping joint research and degree programs are also among the objectives of the Memorandum of Understanding, and student exchange is also an important aspect.

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.

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.
