Updated on the 12th March 2020: Measures Imposed with Immediate Effect at the University of Szeged

An educational break has been ordered for the 12th and 13th March and the Spring Break period of the University will be between the 14th of March 2020 (Saturday) and 22nd of March 2020 (Sunday). The University of Szeged will switch to distance education until withdrawal. All university students of Hungarian citizenship is required to move out of university dormitories and return home by the 13th of March.

The government has ordered a state of emergency in connection with protective measures against the new coronavirus, Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office, said on Wednesday. With regard to the national emergency state declared by the Hungarian Government on the 11th March 2020, the University of Szeged introduced measures with immediate effect on the same day.


To prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection – with regard to the education breaks ordered by the Rector’s resolutions and based on the guidelines of the maintainer of the University, an educational break has been ordered for the 12th and 13th March. Students are not allowed to visit the buildings of the University of Szeged from the 12th of March 2020. Accordingly, all forms of student administration shall be conducted on electronic platforms, such as Neptun, Coospace and Modulo.

 

Instead of the previously accepted duration of the Spring Break period from Friday, 10th of April 2020 to Friday, 17th of April 2020, the Spring Break period of the University is between the 14th of March 2020 (Saturday) and 22nd of March 2020 (Sunday). The University of Szeged, along with other Hungarian higher education institutions, will switch to distance education until withdrawal. Students are not allowed to visit the University of Szeged during the period of distance education either.


Employees of the University of Szeged continue to fulfil their tasks during the educational breaks and the period of distance education until further notice.


All university students of Hungarian citizenship are required to move out of university dormitories until the 13th March and return home. For students of foreign citizenship, the University of Szeged will continue to provide accommodation in university dormitories.


For their personal safety and for the smooth return to Hungary, students are advised to refrain from travelling abroad for private purposes if possible. The University will not be able to guarantee the conditions for returning to Hungary, thus staying abroad may have an impact on the fulfilment of students’ study obligations.

Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.

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.
