Webinar on Equal Opportunities Organized by the University of Szeged and the University of Lund

SZTE and it’s EUGLOH partner Alliance, the Swedish University of Lund are organizing an E-conference on Policies and Definitions of Underrepresented Groups on 19. January 2021 at 13.00 (CET). One of the main goals of the Alliance is to form an international campus with unified and equal rights and opportunities for all students and staff.

Participants will have the chance to gain more insight on the status and support of underrepresented groups introduced by the panellists, and have the opportunity to share their own insights and experiences on the subject. First panellist of the webinar is Dr. Zoltán Bajmócy, Vice-Dean for Scientific Affairs at the SZTE’s Faculty of Economics and Business Administration. Other panellists are the student delegates of the Christian Roma College of Szeged and a delegate of the SZTE’s Student Counselling Centre, which – amongst other tasks – support students with learning difficulties. It is of utmost importance to discover how the students relate to and experience the matter of underrepresented groups, therefore the event will feature student testimony videos from all EUGLOH campuses.

Hearing impaired viewers will be aided by sign interpreters in multiple languages. A Q&A section will close the event where all viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions to any panellist.


The E-conference on Policies and Definitions of Underrepresented Groups is a part of a EUGLOH event series, held every two months on a relevant subject of equal opportunities.

Registering is possible via this link for anyone interested in the subject.

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


Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.
