African Diaspora Union (ADU) Hungary

African students at the University of Szeged have come together to form an Association called “African Diaspora Union (ADU) Hungary”. The Union was officially established on the 5th of February, 2020 at the Union’s Inaugural General Meeting held at their university’s Faculty of Economics and Business Administration where the founding members unanimously adopted their Constitution. The Inaugural General Meeting was attended by the Director of International Affairs Dr. Ildikó Pusztai.

Among other things, the Union has been established to achieve the following objectives: serve as a credible and well organised coordinating platform for Africans, and the activities of Africans in Hungary; support and promote the interest and wellbeing of members; and build lasting relationships among members as well as with people of other nationalities and organisations based on the principles of mutual respect and equal partnerships. The core three values of the ADU are unity, equal partnerships, and inclusive development. Some flagship programs of the ADU would include the celebration of Africa Day, providing orientation for new African students, as well as organising various social and cultural events.


Membership of the Union is open to all people of African descent and people with a connection to Africa. Those student who would like to become a member of the Union can join here.

SZTE Experience

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.

The University of Szeged is a well-known and internationally ranked institution in Hungary and worldwide. It is such a wonderful experience to study here. Instructors are professionals and well-qualified; students are nice and open towards foreign cultures. Events organised by the faculties are pleasant and help with integration as well as provide the opportunity to get new acquaintances and friends.
