The University of Szeged traces its origins back to 1581 with the foundation of the Academia in Cluj (Kolozsvár). In 1872 the Hungarian royal university was established and the university operated in Cluj until 1921 when it was moved to Szeged. The year 2000 was a milestone in the history of the university: the higher education institutions of Szeged were integrated under the name University of Szeged.
At present the University has 12 faculties covering the fields of arts, sciences, law, economics and business administration, engineering, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, health sciences, education, agriculture and music. It also provides quality education at the levels of Bachelor, Master, scientific (PhD), higher-level vocational and postgraduate specialist training programmes.

The University of Szeged, from a research perspective, enjoys clear strengths in the life sciences; specifically in neuroscience, cardiology and pharmacology as well as in mathematics and informatics.
