Student counseling for foreign students

One of the main aims of the Student Counselling Centre of the University of Szeged is to provide help for the student community in tackling life management difficulties. We offer our counselling services for all active students of the UoSz for five sessions free of charge upon registration. Students may check in via this email:

Following registration and a brief orientation, students are referred to our professional staff members, and then the common work can start. We will always try to give an appointment as soon as possible but finding the right staff member for your individual problem takes time. Based on our experiences, the first session can be scheduled within one week. Please not this when you register.

The effectiveness of the counselling process is considerably influenced by the commitment of students, thus uninterrupted participation is highly advisable. Our counselling service is strictly confidential thus no information will be passed to any third party. The language of the individual counselling sessions offered to foreign students is ENGLISH.
