Student Profiles

Alafandi Mohammad Jalal

The last two years were a blessing being at this amazing university. I was very lucky to be able to work with my supervisor who is the best professor ever who was kind enough to trust me with his original ideas. You will belong at our university, regardless of your religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender or beliefs. The students here are like a big family and you can ask anyone for their help.

My time here at Pazmany Peter Catholic University has been characterized by immense knowledge acquisition. The university is like a big family where, irrespective of your nationality, there is always a strong bond and we are a team in all activities carried out at the university, whether academic or recreational. I appreciate that the university has such wonderful administrative staff and lecturers and that it offers such a conducive environment.

Graduated in 2020

PPCU FITB is a very welcoming place and I have felt at home here since my very first day. The community consists of both international and Hungarian students, top academics and lovely staff. When I started my second MSc year, I began to see things from a different perspective, more as an engineer, thanks to our professional teachers at the university who did their best to enlighten us in a comprehensive manner.

Husam Francis Banno

Graduated in 2020

The topics that Pázmány FITB has for my major were interesting for me and it is hard to get a scholarship funded by my country. I chose Hungary because it has a history to learn from and a culture that is different from the surrounding countries. The professors were the best that I have met in my student life in term of knowledge and dealing with foreigner students, that was beyond my expectation.

I did enjoy studying at Pazmany there are always sad moments and happy moments,.The helpful staff that is ready to help under any circumstances and in anything.

I had traveled to other European countries, but I liked Hungary the most, first the old buildings and structures that I consider the best. The country has preserved its nation (In Hungary I see Hungarians, unlike other EU countries that are a mixture of others). The food is different and has a unique taste.

Maikey Zaki Khorani

Graduated in 2020

I chose Pázmány FITB because as I heard from my former lecturers, Pazmany is an excellent university, and there was also a connection with College of Engineering Salahaddin University, as I was a lecturer there too. And my sister had been here first, and she told me that Hungary is terrific.
As I have met my supervisor Associate Professor Lukács, Gergely István PhD at Pázmány FITB, he has taught me data mining, he was genius and accommodating as we worked together. Now I am in the hope that in the future studies, I can complete my PhD with him too. The faculty prepared tutored research project, which were related to the thesis work, and this was very helpful, to start with one thesis work subject and complete it until the end.

I enjoyed studying at Pázmány FITB very much, The lecturers, the international office, they prepared everything we needed. Although I was from a foreign country, I never felt alone. The mentoring system was great, and everyone at the university was very supportive and helpful; we could ask our questions anytime, we also had, additional classes by our lecturers at Pázmány FITB to strengthen our background. The lecturers prepared extra time for us. I have learnt to relate our subjects to solve real-life problems, and that many topics which were, in theory, are related to the practical life, for example the integration in mathematics used to calculate aeroplane pressure, and many other things. I am still in contact with my mentors and most of my lecturers at the Faculty.

A life-changing experience from studying in Hungary, I liked exploring new places, discovering the Hungarian culture, and making Hungarian friends. I had the desire to learn learn learn! More and more, to solve any problem, learning new courses and topics and alternative methods of teaching as each country has a different system, and I was continuously learning and adapting. I was encouraged to live and travel alone, to be independent, also improving my personal development, and to take care of my healthy lifestyle. In the end, to have to win my most distant dreams and goals.

Graduated in 2020

I have chosen Pázmány University because Pázmány is an excellent university, and there is also a connection with the College of Engineering Salahaddin University, where I was a lecturer.
I enjoyed studying at Pázmány very much. The lecturers prepared everything we needed. Although I was from a foreign country, I never felt alone. The mentoring system was great, and everyone at the university was very supportive and helpful. We could ask our questions anytime, and we also had extra classes held by our lecturers to strengthen our background. The lecturers gave extra time for us. I learnt to relate our subjects to solving real-life problems, and I realised that many theoretical topics were indeed related to practical life: for example, mathematical integration used to calculate aeroplane pressure. I am still in contact with my mentors and most of my lecturers at the university.
This study experience opened the possibility for me to return working at the College of Engineering. It helped me to connect as a future academic teacher. Because of studying abroad, I gained new international networks. Now I am on the road to become a university teaching staff in Iraq.
