Update: 17th March 2020 – New Measures on Employment

In order to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus disease, measures concerning employment have been introduced at the University of Szeged until further notice of the management.

With the exception of Albert Szent-Györgyi Health Centre and the Faculty of Dentistry, as a general rule, no employment relationship (public service employment, regular employment, service contract, volunteer contract) may be established at the University of Szeged starting on March 18, 2020 until further notice.  In exceptional cases, in order to ensure the basic operation of the University, or given the current state of emergency, having regard to virological duties the University needs to perform, the Coronavirus Operative Committee may authorize the establishment of employment relationships. Heads of units with the right to establish employee relationships shall request the permission of the Coronavirus Operative Committee at coronavirus.jelentes@rekt.szte.hu, after having sent a brief professional argument.

 

Provided that the nature of their tasks and the technical conditions permit, public service employees may perform their occupational duties, in whole or in part, remotely while their individual entitlements remain unchanged. The form of remote work order can be downloaded here.

 

It is a priority for the University of Szeged to maintain employment relationships with those employees, too, who experience significant difficulties or an increased risk in going to work (especially those who have no one else to supervise their children younger than 12, who live with senior persons in the same household, who have a higher health risk due to a chronic disease or pregnancy). In their case, superiors are highly encouraged to order remote work. If the conditions are lacking and the employee cannot be present at their place of work, the employee may take paid leave and request the rescheduling of their rest days. In addition, the employee may take unpaid leave or, having regard to the state of emergency, may be released from their work and availability obligations as justified, unpaid absence.

 

Measures imposed on healthcare workers, traveling abroad and missions abroad remain in force.

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.

The University of Szeged is a well-known and internationally ranked institution in Hungary and worldwide. It is such a wonderful experience to study here. Instructors are professionals and well-qualified; students are nice and open towards foreign cultures. Events organised by the faculties are pleasant and help with integration as well as provide the opportunity to get new acquaintances and friends.
