SZTE on the frontline of the latest Qs Rankings

Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) has published a list of the best emerging higher education institutions in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The University of Szeged is ranked 33rd in the ranking, thus it is in the top nine percent of the ranked institutions.

Out of the emerging East European and Central Asian regions, 354 universities were added to the UK's QS final rankings this year, expanding the list with 53 new examined institutions compared to last year.

The ranking is based on ten criteria: 30% for the institution's academic recognition and 20% for employers' feedback. They measured the lecturer-student ratio (10 percent), the number of academic staff and researcher on PhD level (5 percent), citation (5 percent), publication activity (10 percent), and the institution's international researcher network (10 percent). The proportion of international students and lecturers was calculated with a weighting of 2.5-2.5 per cent and the visibility of the institution on the Internet was 5 percent.

The compilers of the list examined 20 domestic higher education institutions, of which 19 were evaluated, and 17 of them were included in the final list. The University of Szeged received the second place in Hungary as the best country university: the 33rd place in the ranking. Compared to previous years, the university has improved its position in several areas, such as academic recognition, average citation of publications and the institution's online presence.

SZTE Experience


HardeepHardeep Kaur - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics - Biology PhD

Many of my Indian friends had already been studying here, and SZTE was very popular among them because of its quality education, research and the international community. Without any doubt I submitted my application for Biology PhD. Now, this city serves second home to me: beautiful, clean and modern at the same time carrying its ethnicity. Once I leave the city, I will miss everything about Szeged especially my friends and workplace.

I’m from Brazil, but I feel very comfortable in Szeged. Attending the courses, I acquired thorough knowledge, which was helped by the well-equipped labs, and the modern library of the University. Despite the hustle and bustle, the town is still safe, the quality of life is considerably high, and we receive every assistance to fit in, such as excellent program administration or help searching for accommodations.
