Student testimonials

Management and Business, PhD
Ratnesh Pandey, India
Personally, I am very inspired by the diversity at the University of Debrecen in terms of its population, students with different religions and their politeness towards each other’s values. The best thing about this university is that it offers an opportunity to meet people from all over the world and the way cultural diversity is incorporated into food, events and parties is incredible. And of course, apart from all the fascination and attractions, a student always needs time and space to study. The campus culture and other learning prospects are well-suited for students in Debrecen. “Personal space and a friendly atmosphere create a good environment to study.
Public Health MSc
Teuta Muhollari, Albania
Here at the University of Debrecen student life is more than education. This opportunity has broadened my academic horizon with new ways of learning and a global mind-set which will help me in my future life and decision making. Additionally, Debrecen is an inviting city and you can easily socialize in different cultural, community and networking events.
Medicine
Felipe Salignac Brasil, Brazil
Studying at the University of Debrecen is much more than acquiring knowledge. Just during my first year I already made life-long friendships, got to play handball with the Medical faculty team and was able to experience research first-hand. The facilities are well equipped to fully deliver the lectures and practices which makes learning easier and straightforward. The community life and the support from the senior students are also a strong point at the University. I couldn\'t have chosen a better University to study at.
Chemical Engineering, BSc
Ademola-Adesina Mofiyinfoluwa, Nigeria
Studying at the university has been a wonderful and enlightening experience. This is largely due to the diverse population of international students which gives us an avenue to get to better know each other’s respective cultures. Also, the professors are ready to help any students who are eager to understand course materials. The school also organizes various extra-curricular activities like food day, when the different nations make their native cuisines for everyone to taste.
