Five Universities – One Event: European Sense of Being Through the EUGLOH Alliance Day

On 12 May 2021, 10-17 CET, visitors of the annual EUGLOH Alliance Day can join the various programmes held in a 3D virtual space. The closing event of the day is a concert of the Szeged-based a cappella band, Fool Moon.

The 12th of May marks an important day for the five partner universities of the EUGLOH Alliance (Université Paris-Saclay - France, University of Lund – Sweden, University of Porto – Portugal, Ludwig-Maximilians University – Germany, University of Szeged – Hungary), as they are hosting their annual Alliance Day offering interesting programmes for all visitors throughout the day.

EUGLOH_AllianceDay_finalThe purpose of the Alliance Day is to showcase the international campus spirit that characterises the collaboration of the five universities. Besides the various round-table discussions, participants will have a chance to take part in a live cooking show, relax with some yoga exercises, test their knowledge in various quizzes and get to know the partner universities’ campuses, programmes, students and staff through videos and exhibitions.

The Alliance Day will be held online in a unique 3D virtual space, therefore participants will get the feeling of personal presence. They can walk around and explore the various halls, view a gallery, visit exhibition booths, chat with other visitors of the event and also go to the Auditorium to follow the live programmes.

The vice-rectors of each partner university will gather at a roundtable to discuss their experiences gained through virtual mobility and education, as well as the trends that will follow in the upcoming years. Another roundtable discussion will introduce the popular Let’s Talk course, which is organised by the Hungarian and French partners.

Visitors of the event are welcome to join at any time of the day and participate in as many programmes as they wish. The closing event of the Alliance Day is a live concert by the Szeged-based famous a cappella band, Fool Moon.


The title of this year’s Alliance Day is Exploring the World with Today’s Constraints, which symbolises the 5 European partner universities in the current situation – although they are located in different countries, they work and thrive together to achieve the common goal and establish a European campus.

Participation in the Alliance Day is open for all registered students and staff.

Detailed information and registration is available here.

SZTE Experience


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.
