SZTE Remains One of the Best Universities in Hungary on the UK Top List

Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), the UK-based international ranking agency has published its latest international rankings for higher education institutions in emerging European and Central Asian countries. The University of Szeged was ranked 29th in this year's ranking and remains one of the best universities in the country.

On 15 December 2021, the British QS published its latest EECA (East Europe & Central Asia) ranking, in which the University of Szeged was ranked 29th. As a result, our institution has once again become one of the best universities among the 16 Hungarian higher education institutions surveyed, with four of them making it into the top 50, as in 2020.


Compared to last year, 450 higher education institutions from the emerging Eastern European and Central Asian region are on the QS list, meaning fifty more than last year.SZTE is in the top 6.4 percent of the ranked institutions with this year's ranking. Its position in the ranking has improved in several areas, such as academic recognition and the international scope of research collaborations. Its strongest indicator is its visibility on the internet, where it is ranked in the top 20 in the region, at 16th place.


The ranking continues to be based on ten criteria: 30 percent of the weighting is based on the Academic Reputation of the institution, 20 percent on Employer Reputation, 10 percent on faculty/student ratio, 5 percent on the number of staff with a PhD, 5 percent citations per paper, 10 percent on papers per faculty and 10 percent on the institution's international research network. The proportion of international faculty and international students was weighted at 2.5-2.5 percent, and the web impact (visibility) of the institution on the Internet was weighted at 5 percent.


The full list is available here.

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.

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.
