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.

SZTE Experience

Tamerlan Mendybayev – Faculty of Agriculture

My name is Tamerlan Mendybayev. I am from capital of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan. Currently I am first year student at the Faculty of Agriculture. I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."
