Dear Reader,

Szent István University (SZIU), one of Hungary’s most prominent institutions of higher education, consists of eight different faculties for study and research hosting approximately 15,000 students. The university campuses, located throughout the country, are home to some beautiful buildings in Hungary, offering students and staff a comfortable, relaxing environment for the attainment of knowledge. With parts of its history dating back well over two centuries, SZIU blends Hungary’s rich traditions with cutting-edge technology to meet the needs of its students in today’s competitive labour markets.

Within the eight faculties degree programs are offered in a wide variety of subjects ranging from natural and environmental sciences, food engineering, horticulture, landscape architecture, mechanical engineering to business economics, social sciences, architecture and health sciences. Programmes are available at every level from vocational training to PhD and beyond.

SZIU understands the importance of internationalization and promotes a variety of international activities. With partners on almost every continent, SZIU students and staff can operate on a global scale to gain and share the essential knowledge for success in the globalized world. We see this as a cornerstone for a more secure future and are proud to be a vital part of it.

I hope that by visiting our website you will learn about all the programmes and opportunities we offer and will get a sense of how it feels to be a member of the SZIU team.
