University of Szeged

Introduction

The University of Szeged (SZTE) with a history dating back to 1581, is located in the sunniest city of Hungary attracting thousands of young people due to its lively, urban lifestyle and colorful festivals.

Considering international rankings SZTE usually appears around the outstanding 550th position globally, and in 2017 it was ranked the best Hungarian university (QS).

Outstanding professors have worked at the University, including the Nobel Laureate Albert Szent-Györgyi (1937), who was the first to isolate Vitamin C, extracting it from Szeged paprika.

The University of Szeged is one of the largest universities in Hungary, and the efforts of its nearly 21,000 students and close to 7,000 employees at the 12 university faculties help make the institution the regional center of knowledge in Hungary and Central Europe.

The number of the international students is constantly increasing, and it reaches 14% of the student body. A mentor system assists them to settle down in Szeged and find their way in the University.

The 12:1 student-faculty ratio is a key to success in obtaining valuable knowledge and academic qualifications and it is a highly important task to help our students make use of their knowledge in the most effective way.

The steadily extending, fruitful national and international co-operation of the University with institutes and companies demonstrate that our graduates, due to our competitive degrees programs coupled with skills development, as well as extensive practical experience, enter the labor market well prepared.
