The University of Szeged is the Second Best Hungarian University in Two Subjects!

The University of Szeged has improved its ranking in physics from last year on ARWU’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects. In clinical medicine it has maintained its position from 2020. These results make the institution the second best Hungarian University in both subjects.

The University of Szeged has been included in the GRAS (Global Rankings of Academic Subjects) ranking published on 26 May in two subjects. In physics, the institution has been ranked for several years. This year, the university has moved up the ranking to 301 - 400, making the physics programme of the University of Szeged the second best in Hungary. The university has also been included in the ranking of clinical medicine: SZTE maintains its previous position of 401-500, and as such, remains the second best institution in this field in Hungary.

Every year, ShanghaiRanking publishes a list of the world's best universities by subject. After thorough evaluation of their academic work, more than 1,800 out of 4,000 universities are finally listed in the rankings.

In 2021 the rankings cover 54 subjects in life sciences, natural sciences, engineering, medical sciences and social sciences. Bibliometric data are collected from Web of Science and InCites. The ranking takes into account the number of scientific papers published in journals with Q1 Journal Impact Factor Quartile, the citation rate, the proportion of co-authored papers with foreign co-authors, and the number of scientific papers presented in the most prestigious journals and conferences. In addition, the number of academics and researchers who have received major awards is also taken into account.

SZTE Experience


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.
