IISMA Awardees at the University of Szeged 2022 Fall Semester

The University of Szeged is proud to be one of the selected partner universities of the Indonesian government's scholarship of excellence programme called International Indonesian Student Mobility Award (IISMA 2022). This Indonesian scholarship programme funds Indonesian students participating in mobility programmes at top universities overseas.

Undergraduate students have the possibility to spend up to one semester at the overseas partner institutions to study, experience the host country’s culture, and do practical assignments to hone their skills.

There was a huge competition during this year’s application process, as only 73 universities were selected as host institutions worldwide by the Indonesian Government. There are 439 awardees selected for the European region in 21 host universities (2 Hungarian institutions).

The Directorate for International Affairs and Public Relations of the University of Szeged is delighted with the result and hopes that the IISMA program will be just as successful as last year. In the fall semester of the Academic Year 2022-23, 46 Indonesian students can acquire professional and multicultural knowledge at the 7 Faculties and its programmes of the University of Szeged

The aim of the scholarship programme is to provide 1,000 Indonesian students with multidisciplinary education in excellent higher education institutions.

The international mobility promoted by IISMA will develop students’ cross-cultural awareness, tolerance and global citizenship, important values in creating a global sustainable future.” – Says Nadiem Anwar Makarim, Minister of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology of the Republic of Indonesia.

The programme also contributes to SZTE’s international recognition and mutual cooperation with Indonesian universities.

SZTE Experience


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.

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.
