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

I am a PhD student and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder from the Philippines. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Science and I happen to be in my 3rd year of studies. I chose University of Szeged because its one of the top ranked research university in Hungary known for its good reputation in the fields of health and natural sciences. Coming from the Philippines with a warm climate, I had huge preference of Szeged for my studies, the city having the most rays of sunshine and considered to be the warmest place in Hungary. I would advise all the prospective students to join University of Szeged’s diverse and vibrant community! Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone, try to find and establish your niche in a new place like what I did. I didn’t regret coming to Szeged as it continuously provides me an enabling learning environment for various reasons, has affordable cost of living, very safe and calm university town, organized transport system, beautiful and clean surroundings with the very sightly Tisza River which adds to its appeal, and also holds many festivals throughout the year. After graduation, I am planning to go back to my home institution and continue my teaching duties at the University of the Philippines Los Baños

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.
