Support for Students

You may find student life new and exciting, but also a bit bewildering. If you've come from high school, you need to get used to being part of a much bigger community, and you may also be living away from home for the first time, with all the readjustment involved in that. You are likely to need advice and support in order to find your feet socially and academically.

The Faculties operate their support service staffed by people who are easy to contact and who can give you guidance on the following:

▪ application and admission

▪ orientation

▪ academic regulations


▪ financial issues / loan

▪ legal and community problems

▪ residence permit / visa

▪ health insurance

▪ personal concerns

International Student Union of Szeged

I.S.U.S. is an organization created for students by students with the support of the University of Szeged providing you with free, independent and confidential advice and guidance. Members can help you solve problems you may face as a student, including academic, information about housing, transportation, restaurants and more. Students are able to access the service face-to-face, via e-mail or over the phone at our on campus office. For more information about the service and contact details please go to www.isus-szeged.com
