Some of the student opinion of University of Szeged:

„University of Szeged is a quality institution with interesting subjects, helpful teachers and a lot of international students.”

“Most lectures were very (or even too) understandable to the Erasmus students.”

„The social life of the city itself. It is not a very big city but it is full of young people due to its famous university. The amount of Erasmus students was big as well, so the social life and the relationships you can make were the best part.”

„I really enjoyed lessons there. Mostly because there were not too many students (10/15) and so the lessons were more interactive than in my home country.”

„For me, I was going to laboratories and they were very helpful. Also most of the exams are like discussion. Its better then classic exams :)”

“For students, especially from Western European Countries, prices are comparable cheap (especially rent, alcohol, eating at a restaurant) I found the food prices in the supermarket similar to the one in Germany, it is cheaper (and much more interesting) to buy on the local markets.”

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.

I came from a city where young women have recently successfully fought against the mentality that had not allowed them to go to study abroad.5 years ago families were extremely protective over their daughters, but nowadays it has been changed into a new perception which allows girls to have the freedom to choose their way of life: career and personal development.
