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.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.
