The University of Szeged Welcomes Students from Ukraine

Hungary, as a committed member of the European Union and NATO, guarantees the safety of those living and staying in Hungary and provides all assistance to refugees from Ukraine.


The University of Szeged (hereinafter: University) does its utmost to help those who wish to study in Hungary after leaving war-torn Ukraine. The institution offers them the opportunity to join the University's graduate courses.


To apply, please visit the DreamApply interface at the following link: https://apply.u-szeged.hu/


Applicants are kindly requested to enter the tracker "Ukraine 2022" in the DreamApply interface during or after registration.


As the spring semester term started more than a month ago, this semester, the University will admit interested students as guest students, who will not have to pay application and examination fees, will be granted free guest student status and will be exempt from tuition fees for the semester. During the semester, the University will offer online courses to the admitted guest students. Successful completion of these courses will also earn them credits.


During the semester, the staff of the faculties and departments concerned will assess the professional knowledge of the applicants on the basis of the documents they provide and personal interviews. If the applicant meets the academic requirements, he/she will be able to join the normal curriculum from the autumn semester. Courses that are recognised by the University will of course be credited with the corresponding number of credits.


Guest students who have already been admitted can apply for an exceptional scholarship for a limited period of time, which will be funded by the Erasmus+ programme. The details of this will be communicated electronically by the University to the persons concerned after their admission.

For socially deprived students, the institution will also provide dormitory accommodation and board.


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.
