If any student comes to me and says he wants to be useful to mankind and go into research to alleviate human suffering, I advise him to go into charity instead. Research wants real egotists who seek their own pleasure and satisfaction, but find it in solving the puzzles of nature.
Loyal to the intellectual heritage of Albert Szent-Györgyi, we consider it important that our students should not only graduate, but also continue their journey of becoming intellectuals, and for this the city of Szeged offers a wide range of cultural and artistic programmes. Apart from providing the conditions for our students to obtain valuable knowledge and academic qualifications, we consider it a highly important task to help our students make use of their knowledge in the most effective way. Thanks to the steadily extending, fruitful national and international co-operations of the University, our graduates are well prepared to enter the labour market. Their careers serve as good examples for the future generations of Szeged students.
The University of Szeged is a well-known institution in our country, which means that our responsibility is high in terms of sustainability. Our main goal is to give knowledge and perspectives to the youth, and teach them how they can be successful and eco-friendly at the same time. In this Strategy we want to determinate the steps that it needs. The students, who choose us meets highly equiped buildings all over the city: selective trashcans, solar panels and solar cells can be found everywhere. Because we do not have a regular campus, which means that our buildings are all over the city, creating the possibility to get from A to B fast, save and eco-friendly, we installed bicycle storage to every building.
