Updated: 18th March, 2020 - Bilingual chatbot extends student information at SZTE

In addition to the health student hotline launched on the 10th of March, a chatbot has also been launched to inform university students at the SZTE. On the University of Szeged Facebook page, Berci-bot provides information in Hungarian and English on distance education, graduation and dormitory placement.

Since the 10th of March, coronavirus-related information has been available 24/7 for students of the University of Szeged through a public hotline. SZTE students can ask for information in healthcare related issues, both in Hungarian and in English, at +36 62 546 800. On 18th March, a chatbot is launched to give out information about upcoming changes in education necessary because of the current national state of emergency.


The chatbot sends out short messages about the length of the semester, the official venues of education, practical lessons, thesis defense sessions or who is allowed to stay in dormitories. Berci-bot is available on the official Facebook page of the University of Szeged.

Nazrin_BakirovaNazrin Bakirova- International Economy and Business

I came from a city where young women have recently successfully fought against the mentality that had not allowed them to go to study abroad.5 years ago families were extremely protective over their daughters, but nowadays it has been changed into a new perception which allows girls to have the freedom to choose their way of life: career and personal development.


PhuongPhuong Thu Tran - Faculty of Economics - Business Administration and Management

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.
