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 colourful festivals.
Considering international rankings SZTE usually appears among the top 550-560th position globally, and in 2022 it is ranked the best Hungarian university (QS).
Outstanding professors and Alumni 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 or Katalin Karikó biochemist who specializes in RNA-mediated mechanisms. Her work greatly assisted to develop a technique which is also used for COVID-19 vaccines.
The University of Szeged is one of the largest universities in Hungary, and the efforts of its 22,000 students and close to 8,000 employees at the 12 university faculties help make the institution the regional centre of knowledge in Hungary and Central Europe.
The number of the international students is constantly increasing and it reaches 20% 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-operations of the University with institutes and companies clearly demonstrate that our graduates, due to our competitive degrees programmes coupled with skills development, as well as extensive practical experience, enter the labour market well prepared. Their careers are good examples for the future generations of students in Szeged.
