The University of Szeged has Issued New Regulations for Traveling Abroad and Receiving Foreign Delegations.

The University of Szeged regulates the issues related to traveling abroad and receiving foreign delegations with the Rector-chancellor circular No. 11/2020. (XI.16.) during the health emergency.

Private travels of employees are not restricted, the employee can travel abroad at his/her own risk in view of the current epidemic situation.

In the current situation however, the University of Szeged does not recommend trips abroad to any citizen of the University.


If the employee decides to travel abroad on his/her own responsibility, he/she shall bear the labour liability and the costs of the epidemiological measures in respect of the consequences thereof.

 

Ordering official foreign missions and receiving foreign delegations may take place in accordance with laws and regulations in effect, however we do not recommend these at the moment, they may be retained only in cases of special professional justification.

 

We would also like to inform you that free of charge PCR assay tests can only be provided hereinafter to our students majoring in health care studies, who need to do the tests in order to continue their university studies and participate in their practical studies and internships.

In case of travel abroad, the PCR test required by the host state at entry or the PCR test to shorten the mandatory epidemiological quarantine upon return to Hungary must be organized and financed by the traveller, in which case the University cannot provide free of charge PCR testing.

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."

I am a PhD student and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder from the Philippines. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Science and I happen to be in my 3rd year of studies. I chose University of Szeged because its one of the top ranked research university in Hungary known for its good reputation in the fields of health and natural sciences. Coming from the Philippines with a warm climate, I had huge preference of Szeged for my studies, the city having the most rays of sunshine and considered to be the warmest place in Hungary. I would advise all the prospective students to join University of Szeged’s diverse and vibrant community! Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone, try to find and establish your niche in a new place like what I did. I didn’t regret coming to Szeged as it continuously provides me an enabling learning environment for various reasons, has affordable cost of living, very safe and calm university town, organized transport system, beautiful and clean surroundings with the very sightly Tisza River which adds to its appeal, and also holds many festivals throughout the year. After graduation, I am planning to go back to my home institution and continue my teaching duties at the University of the Philippines Los Baños
