Summer semester 2019

Dear Students,


The Gateway Chinese-Hungarian Student Exchange Programme is organized by the University of Szeged Faculty of Law and Political Sciences. Our Gateway Programme offers summer semester for Chinese guest students in 2019. During the three-week long period the students get an in-depth look into the different aspects of the Hungarian criminal law, both in theory and practice. The members of our internationally recognized Criminal Law Institute deliver theoretical lectures, and also organize visits to the Police, courts, penitentiary and Forensic Science Institute. In addition to the criminal law knowledge, the honourable lecturers of our Faculty introduce different fields of the Hungarian legal system, such as Intellectual Property Law, Labour Law and also International Law.


Besides the professional knowledge, two cultural trips are included in the summer semester programme, one to the National Heritage Park of Ópusztaszer and another to our nation’s capital, Budapest. In the National Heritage Park, students will be introduced to the Hungarian history by interactive activities, such as 3D movies, archery, horse show and so on.


Our nation’s capital is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, which provides countless cultural and free time programmes. A visit to our Parliament and sightseeing in Budapest is included in the trip.


As a result of this intense three-week programme, our guest students could improve their English language skills, their professional, legal English in particular, and also they could gather additional knowledge about Hungary, its legal system and its cultural heritage as well. Moreover, our Gateway Programme provides free weekends in order to give students a chance to discover the beauties of Europe.

We duly hope to welcome you as our student in this summer!
