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 nearly 13,500 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 55 different nations.

International applicants to SZE already enjoy a choice of 34 English-taught programmes at all levels representing around one third of all the programmes on offer. 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 greatest strengths lie within the field of STEM subjects and 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.

Significantly, the University boasts 9 Competence Centres, organised on a matrix structure and operating in an interdisciplinary fashion across the Faculties. These research units are tasked with attracting external resources in the field of key competences, providing innovation and R&D services for both corporate and public stakeholders. They 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, the Design Competence Centre and the Health Innovation Competence Centre.

The main campus of Széchenyi István University has in recent years undergone a massive infrastructural renewal including the addition of two new high quality and well-equipped Halls of Residence. Currently under development is a state-of-the-art Technology and Innovation Park (TIP) on a 3.6-hectare site, facing the University on the opposite bank of the River Danube. With the first phase scheduled to open in 2021, TIP is set to be one of Hungary's most influential science, technology and business environments, providing tenant companies and start-ups with an environment of innovation and creativity. The mission of the development is to enhance collaboration between large, medium and small sized enterprises, university researchers and talented university students. 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 of the institution among international students, as evidenced by the very positive results of our annual student satisfaction survey, is accounted for not only by the high quality of the teaching but also by the situation of the University’s award-winning main campus in a rich natural environment, the high level of security in both the city and on campus, the numerous cultural sites - especially the recently renovated Baroque era city centre - and the comparatively low cost of living. Moreover, the geographical location of the city of Győr facilitates travel to many of the capitals of Central Europe.
