It is our pleasure to welcome you at the University of Szeged. There has never been a more exciting time to study health sciences. The research that has been conducted and the discoveries that were made will make the preservation of health and the treatment of disease more sophisticated and successful.
Over the past centuries, the University of Szeged has become known as one of the most respected and highly acclaimed schools in Hungary and in the world. One of its most famous rectors was Albert Szent-Györgyi, who received the most prestigious award of sciences in 1937, the Nobel-prize for his research conducted at the university.
The Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Dentistry and the Faculty of Pharmacy form one of the largest health educational complexes in Hungary. Health sciences training is pursued here in three languages. Parallel with our Hungarian Language Medical Training we started an English Language Medical, Dental and Pharmaceutical Training Program and a German Language Medical Training Program. In the spirit of discovery, many of our staff and students are conducting scientific research within biomedical projects funded by national and international agencies. As a major academic health science centre, the University of Szeged offers students a challenging environment in which they can prepare for a career in health sciences and health care. Furthermore, the friendly atmosphere in Szeged, where virtually everything is within walking distance, provides excellent living and learning circumstances.
Whether you are a prospective student, a proud member of our alumni or simply someone who wants to learn more about the University and the Foreign Language Programs, we hope these pages provide the information you are looking for.
