Why should I study here?

The University of Szeged traces its origins back to 1581 with the foundation of the Academia in Cluj (Kolozsvár). István Báthory, Prince of Transylvania, King of Poland (1571–1586), and Grand Duke of Lithuania, took measures to establish a Catholic university (academia – universitas) consisting of two faculties, Arts and Theology.

What are the admissions criteria?

Transcripts must be submitted to the school with the application.  Additionally, the programs require either a Skype interview, an online test, or an entrance exam located at one of their partner organizations (worldwide locations). Applicants also need to include a photocopy of their passport. Application deadlines range from May through the end of June. If English is not your native language, proof of English proficiency is required. For dentistry, pharmacy, and medicine: Applicants must pass an entrance exam assessing knowledge in Biology, Chemistry, and English. The exams are conducted from February to June in global locations (including the US). IB students with high scores in designated courses can be exempted from the exam.

What is student life like?

From the school: The University of Szeged offers such a wide variety of sports activities that the time spent studying at the university proves to be too short to try out all of them. To mention just some of the less common ones: every student has the opportunity to try parachuting, horse riding, skiing, and yoga; all in addition to the university’s sports associations, where competitions are held in a number of sports, from fencing to basketball. University club meetings, parties, and performances, in the JATE-KLUB in particular, offer rich and pure entertainment to everybody. Szeged’s cultural life would be unimaginable without these events or the ones staged in student hostels. Whether looking for a film club or a place to dance or sing, everybody can find what their hearts desire among the amateur groups and associations of our university. Events of the Autumn Festival, the University Spring, and programs of the TIK provide a foretaste of these activities for outsiders as well. During the carnival season, every faculty holds their own ball with music and dance. One of the most noted ones is the traditional University Charity Ball which has become one of the most prestigious events of social life in Szeged.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
