Helping our international students- University of Nyíregyháza

The International Relations Group of the Student Service Center conducts the all-round preparation of students for participating in mobility programmes as well as the administration of the issues of the international students.

Since 2017, the new Erasmus+ website and the online application platform have facilitated a better and faster information sharing and administration; the website was upgraded with new functions in 2018 and the official Facebook page of the International Relations Group was launched.

The staff of the International Relations Group have organised lectures about the possibilities and conditions of mobilities for the interested students and university staff in order to increase the quantity and quality of international mobilities.

In 2018, the monthly event called Mobility Café continued with the aim of promoting Erasmus+ and Campus Mundi programmes for the target group. Furthermore, the staff of the International Relations Group offer personal counselling and support to outgoing and incoming students and staff.

The interests of the international students are represented by the Student Union of the University of Nyíregyháza. Every student is a member of the Student Union; they are all electors and can be elected. International students can contact the Student Union with their problems and suggestions.

The Student Hall of Residence Group and the University Hall of Residence Board are entitled to deal with the hall of residence issues of the international students as well as represent their hall of residence interests, along with the International Relations Group.

As a worthy completion of the II. Erasmus+ International Days our county was introduced to the guest lecturers invited to the event and to the 32 Erasmus+ foreign students present at our institute. Under the guidance of Dr Kálmán Kiss and the Luby Association, there was an excursion full of experiences comprising a visit to the Márapócs National Shrine, furthermore a presentation of the folk artefacts such as various folk objects, weaving loom, mangle, and many other things, in Bereg Museum. In Túristvándi, on the bank of the River Túr, we turned into a guest house, built according to local characteristics, for a delicious Hungarian lunch. We had real culinary delights in the guest house called MegálmodtaLAK (’The House I Dreamt Of’).

We paid a visit to the Móricz Zsigmond Memorial House in Tiszacsécse, where we learnt a great deal about the writer. We continued our journey to Szatmárcseke, where we visited the Kölcsey Monument. After these stops, we rushed to Nagyar, where we visited the Petőfi Tree, the Petőfi Memorial House, and finally, we turned into the magnificent Luby Castle. We were invited to the castle’s Palm House, which was an extraordinary experience. We were served an amazing dinner in the Luby Castle, which proved to be an unforgettable adventure.

As the first part of the event, Éva Dudás, Erasmus coordinator gave a briefing to the interested about the possibilities of staff and student scholarships available at the foreign partner institutes of the University of Nyíregyháza.

Mobility Café Event At Our University

International Relations Group, which is a part of the university’s Students Service Center, organised the Mobility Café event once again on November 21, 2017 with the general aim of providing information to the students of the University of Nyíregyháza about the possibilities of the Erasmus+ programme and encouraging students to take part in mobility-related activities.

As the first section of the Mobility Café event, Éva Dudás, Erasmus coordinator, gave a short introduction to those interested on the available student and staff scholarships, emphasizing distinctly the fact that students can be given help in their foreign language preparation. According to the briefing, the Erasmus+ programme is currently available for the students in two arrangements: In its longer version, students can pursue their studies abroad, whereas, in its shorter layout, which can also be obtained in the summer, they can be involved in a traineeship at a workplace chosen by the participant. As a further possibility, students can apply for the Hungarian State Campus Mundi scholarship in which they can study even outside Europe at a higher education institute selected on their own.

In the next part of the Mobility Café, Kristóf Gergely, Teacher of History and Hungarian MA, gave a lecture and a travelogue to those present about the months he had spent in the city of Lublin in Poland as a participant of the Erasmus+ programme. The student who had taken part in the Erasmus+ programme elaborated that winning the scholarship had proved to be an excellent opportunity for language learning, professional and study development as well as for getting to know a new culture and new friends, for unwinding and absorbing experiences.

The convivial event concluded as it had become usual, in an informal, conversational way with an opportunity for consultation on the topic. The organisers are planning to continue the event in the future with the invitation of additional lecturers.

Further information on the Erasmus+ programme is available on the webpage of the International Relations Group of the University of Nyíregyháza (, likewise, every student is entitled to contact the Erasmus coordinator with their inquiries at the Student Service Center of the University of Nyíregyháza.
