Europe at home – summer programmes with EUGLOH

Online courses to earn credits with the best universities in Europe.

Within the EUGLOH project, several virtual workshops will be organized in summer 2020 that are open to attend for students of the University of Szeged. It is not necessary to travel to the organising country to attend. A certificate can be earned with the completion of the courses, therefore credits can be earned at the SZTE.

Writing Global Health: A Virtual Workshop Series

25th May 2020 – 25th June 2020

Conducting research is one thing, but how can we make sure that our findings are widely disseminated? Presenting skills are also required when describing research results and outcomes. This is the primary objective of this EUGLOH virtual workshop.

All participants are welcome at the mini course of LMU München and Paris-Saclay as this programme can be a great help to write your thesis as well.

SZTE Experience

amin-alawar2Amin Alawar - Faculty of Science and Informatics - Biology (PhD)

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.

SantiagoSantiago Vallejo - Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

I’m from Ecuador and a Ph.D. student from the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship program. I first heard about the University of Szeged on the internet. The general study environment is nice and student life in the city is lovely. With my program and the academic system, I can control my time which is a plus. The city is very affordable, and I live in the city center. One of my favorite extra-curricular activities is the Hungarian cultural programs. I have so many favorite spots, but parks are top on the list. The professors and staffs are very approachable. The mentors and classmates also did an excellent job to explore and know the city better. I hope to continue my career as a professor, and I would recommend the university to friends because it is, in general, a beautiful place.
