New PPE Has Been Delivered to Clinics of Szeged

Protective gears delivered from China were distributed to the University of Szeged. Surgical masks, protective coats, rapid tests were included in the consignment delivered by Waberer’s Ltd. on the 7th April 2020.

Semmelweis University was commissioned by the Ministry for Innovation and Technology of Hungary to place an order on PPE from China, and hospitals of the University of Debrecen, the University of Pécs and clinics in Budapest also benefit from the consignment, including 57,000 masks and 5,000 protective coats as well as protective gears, googles and rapid tests, according to the press release issued by Ministry for Innovation and Technology of Hungary.

Universities offering medical and healthcare-related training are key determinants of the Hungarian higher education system. Clinics operated by these universities play an important role in certain elements of the Hungarian healthcare and maintain one quarter of inpatient-care practice activities.

The Hungarian Government is doing all within its remit to improve PPE stocks in the country. Protective gears necessary in preventing transmission of novel coronavirus of large batches are mainly at disposal in China. In addition to more than 7 million surgical masks and 3 million pairs of gloves, 100,000 rapid tests as well as medication were distributed to Hungary. PPE offered by Fudan University – which intends to establish a campus in Hungary – has recently landed in Budapest. More protective equipment and tools are expected to be delivered to the country in the future.

SZTE Experience

My name is Olney Rodrigues de Oliveira and I am from Brazil. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies in the Doctoral School of Education at SZTE. I chose the University of Szeged because it’s one of the best universities in Europe, especially in the field of education. I personally love Szeged because it is safe and I love the architecture, the cultural events, the local Market Mars Tér and so many other beautiful destinations. For my studies I wanted to have an excellent university in a good quality life city and Szeged offers me that. It’s neither too big nor too small, I can ride my bike to go to my classes and practically everything is within a walking distance. I would advise the prospective students to enjoy the city during their stay, the cultural and historical events, know other international students and make a lot of friends, visit other cities in Hungary and make good memories. I am pretty sure that you will be proud of this priceless experience. Before coming to Hungary I worked several years as a teacher. I love the academic environment, the libraries, relationship with students and the feeling to be involved in the acquisition of new knowledge. That is why I plan to be part of a University as a professor as well as to keep researching in different aspects of the process of education. I am so thankful to be here and I believe that the Universe brought me to Szeged because the city and the University are the experience that I need in my life now.


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.
