International Students Can Now Apply for the Immunity Certificate

We are pleased to inform our international students that foreign nationals who have been vaccinated in Hungary can now apply for an immunity certificate.

If you wish to apply for an immunity card, please fill in the enclosed application form and bring it in person to the Csongrád-Csanád County Government Office or hand it in at any Government Office.
Please note that you will need to provide proof of identity when submitting the application form, so please make sure you have the following documents with you.

- medical certificate confirming the vaccination

- passport

- residence permit

- social security card - TAJ card (if you have one)

You will have to fill out and submit the form written in Hungarian, the English version is just for guidance to fill in the form.

Due to current legislation, certain services provided by the university (like the Central Library and sport facilities) can only be used if you have an immunity certificate, the medical certificate confirming the vaccination is not enough right now. We are constantly working to find a solution to this problem and will inform you as soon as there are any changes regarding this.

Senior students from abroad who have been previously vaccinated in Hungary are expected to be able to enter the country for the start of the new academic year under less strict rules.



SZTE Experience


Tamerlan Mendybayev – Faculty of Agriculture

My name is Tamerlan Mendybayev. I am from capital of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan. Currently I am first year student at the Faculty of Agriculture. I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.

My name is Olney Rodrigues de Oliveira and I am from Brazil. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies in the Doctoral School of Education at SZTE. I chose the University of Szeged because it’s one of the best universities in Europe, especially in the field of education. I personally love Szeged because it is safe and I love the architecture, the cultural events, the local Market Mars Tér and so many other beautiful destinations. For my studies I wanted to have an excellent university in a good quality life city and Szeged offers me that. It’s neither too big nor too small, I can ride my bike to go to my classes and practically everything is within a walking distance. I would advise the prospective students to enjoy the city during their stay, the cultural and historical events, know other international students and make a lot of friends, visit other cities in Hungary and make good memories. I am pretty sure that you will be proud of this priceless experience. Before coming to Hungary I worked several years as a teacher. I love the academic environment, the libraries, relationship with students and the feeling to be involved in the acquisition of new knowledge. That is why I plan to be part of a University as a professor as well as to keep researching in different aspects of the process of education. I am so thankful to be here and I believe that the Universe brought me to Szeged because the city and the University are the experience that I need in my life now.
