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.

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."

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.
