Overview

Széchenyi István University (SZE, is located in Győr, an attractive city on the River Danube in north-west Hungary, and situated midway between the capitals of Hungary, Austria and Slovakia. We are a dynamically developing University with over 12,500 students and employing more than 600 academic staff. The rapid pace of the internationalization process at Széchenyi István University is evidenced by not only the ongoing infrastructural renewal of the campus, but also by the steady annual rise in the numbers of international students, currently representing 53 different nations.

 International applicants to SZE have a choice of 33 English-taught programmes at all levels representing one third of all the programmes. Within the 9 Faculties and 4 Doctoral schools, the 12 fields of study range from Law and Business/Economics through Engineering and Computer Science to Sport and Music. The University’s strengths lie within the diverse branches of engineering, most especially automotive engineering.

 Due to its optimum location, Győr has become a leading automotive and industrial hub and the base of the world’s largest engine factory: Audi Hungaria Motor Kft. The University is proud of the “Audi Hungaria Faculty of Automotive Engineering”, launched in 2015 and now boasting six professorships. The company’s involvement at the University of Győr is intensified by the extensive participation of experts in lectures and research.

 The University boasts 8 Competence Centres, organised on a matrix structure and operating in an interdisciplinary fashion across the Faculties. The Competence Centres include The Vehicle Industry Research Centre, The E-mobility Competence Centre, The Digital Development Centre, The Higher Education-Industrial Cooperation Centre, The Management Campus Competence Centre, The Agricultural and Food Industry Research Centre, The Globalization Competence Centre and The Design Competence Centre.

 As guarantees of our success, we increasingly rely on active collaboration with numerous industrial partners in the region and local government support complemented by an entrepreneurial research culture and an ever-growing awareness of our social responsibility.

The growing popularity among international students can be accounted for by the high level of security in evidence, the institution’s attractive surroundings, the recently renovated historic city centre and the close proximity of the rich natural environment. Moreover, the city of Győr’s location facilitates travel to many of the capitals of Central Europe.
