On the U-Multirank ranking that is supported by the European Union, the University of Szeged was again marked with an excellent ranking. The international ranking ranked higher education institutions in 96 countries, including 15 Hungarian universities by more than 30 indicators.

The international U-Multirank ranking began to measure the world's higher education institutions in 2014. The aim of the European Union was to create a multi-dimensional university ranking that helps students studying abroad to choose a higher education institution. That is why the ranking is not only based on a few aspects, but also takes 36 indicators into consideration in five focus areas. They take into account the research and educational activities of the higher education institutions, their regional role, their international visibility and the results achieved in the field of knowledge transfer.


In the 2019 ranking, 1711 higher education institutions from 96 countries were ranked, among others in Sweden, Japan, Russia, Portugal, and Namibia, Malaysia and Iran. 15 Hungarian universities participated in U-Multirank, including the University of Szeged.

SZTE was the most successful in the field of knowledge transfer. In this field, the University was ranked the best in terms of the index of publications with partners and cited publications. The University of Szeged holds a prominent position in the field of research as well. The number and quality of both professional and interdisciplinary publications were featured efficiently at the University of Szeged.


As for regional engagement, it can be clearly demonstrated that the proportion of students being employed in the region as SZTE- graduates is high.

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
