EUGLOH Summer School of Szeged Starts!

The University of Szeged is hosting a EUGLOH Summer School about biomedical data processing, AI and machine learning along with the global aspects of COVID-19. The course takes place between 06-10 of July and is hallmarked by the European University Alliance for Global Health.

The summer school proved quite popular in all the partner institutes of EUGLOH, as more than 300 participants will join the livestreamed sessions held by educators and experts of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Lund University, Universidade do Porto, Université Paris-Saclay, University of Szeged, Biological Research Centre and ELI ALPS.

Details and timeline available here.

The organizers prepared interactive programs for the participating students. They can join the Szeged student board on a virtual campus tour, relax on a livestreamed yoga session, listen to a live concert performed by ESN students, participate in a kilometer collecting challenge and test their knowledge with various interactive quizzes.

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.

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.
