Let’s Talk! - Introduction

The focus of the course is intercultural communication under which French and Hungarian students can cooperate.

As for the structure of the course, Tamás Pongó and László Gulyás teaches online classes where different cultural topics are in the focus. After the lectures, the students will be put into international groups – meaning Hungarians will be working together with French – where they will participate in video conferences and talk about certain topics without the lecturers’ supervision.

The language of the course is English, and it is a practice-oriented training where students’ ideas and thoughts get a lot of emphasis.

The course evaluation is not based on traditional exams or assignments but on other creative ways (creating projects, devising new activities and so on).


You can apply at Dr. Tamás Pongó pongo.tamas@juris.u-szeged.hu until 15th October 2020 15.00.

SZTE Experience


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."


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.
