The University of Szeged and the Fulbright Commission Renewed Their Cooperation

The University of Szeged hosts Fulbright scholarship awardee American scholars, thus strengthening the international relations of the University of Szeged. The agreement was signed on the 10th of April by Prof. Dr. Márta Széll, Vice-Rector for Strategic Affairs of the University of Szeged and Dr. Károly Jókay, Executive Director of the Fulbright Commission.

The Fulbright Exchange Program, covering more than 160 countries around the world, not only offers scholarships to study, conduct research and teach but also provides a unique opportunity which has a decisive influence on the life of scholars.


‘Hungary has been participating in the scholarship program provided by the US-based organization since 1978. As a result, since 1981, 45 people travelled to the United States from Hungary, also on the basis of reciprocity 51 people arrived to Hungary from the United States for pursuing their studies, teaching, or conducting research at the University of Szeged’ said Prof. Dr. Márta Széll, SZTE Vice-Rector for Strategic Affairs. She emphasized that as a host institution, the University of Szeged strives to raise the awareness of young people, educators and researchers from overseas that the University of Szeged is one of the most advanced and modern higher education centers in Hungary and in Europe.

Dr. Károly Jókay, Executive Director of the Fulbright Committee, said that the cooperation agreement has a diplomatic value, as teachers and students from universities that receive US scholars tend to apply more for scholarships. He added that besides the Hungarian and American states, Hungarian universities and research institutes are taking part in the program by providing housing and financial support for people from America.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.

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.
