The entry requirements for the global ranking are: teaching activity at multiple levels of education, diversity of disciplines, internationally visible publication activity. Of all the institutions that meet these requirements, 1300 - nearly 300 more than last year - were ranked in the world ranking, which is based on six criteria. The major one is the academic reputation of the institution, with a weighting of 40%, followed by the employer reputation, with a weighting of 10%. The faculty / student ratio, and the number of citations per faculty were also assessed, with a weighting of 20% each. The last two criteria are the International faculty ratio and the International student ratio (5% each).


The excellent teaching and research activities of the University of Szeged are demonstrated by the fact that almost all ranking criteria received a higher score than last year. The institution's employer recognition has increased significantly, while the strongest indicator is the proportion of international students.

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.
