Acting within the appropriate regulatory framework in the field of education, Eötvös Loránd University’s Epidemiological Operative Coordinating Body created the interim Regulations of Training and Examination (TVSZ) for the distant education period. The document states that “the basic requirement for an oral examination is a simultaneous audio-visual connection between the student and the examiner”. It is your responsibility to guarantee the proper technical requirements from your side. Information on the technical details of the Final Examination is going to be sent later.

Thesis submission

Due to the emergency situation, the submission of the Thesis in 2019/20/2 happens only electronically, via Neptun system. Printed Thesis works are NOT required this semester.

You have to complete all your exams, and check if you received all your grades in Neptun maximum 3 days before the Final Exam date. Please note that the Thesis writing seminar, Tutorial seminar, or Consultation regarding your Thesis is also included in the required credit amount if it is listed in your curriculum, therefore you should also receive a grade for it.

Financial obligations, credit exceeding fee

In case you have any pending payments towards the university, you have to settle the debt 3 days prior to your Final Exam the latest (Academic Regulations Section 81/7). Unless you complete the pending payments, you will not be allowed to take your Final Examination. For more information about finances, please visit: https://btk.elte.hu/fees-and-finances
Guide for Neptun payments: https://qter.elte.hu/Statikus.aspx/GyIK-Penzugy

Please note that the official administrative and service fees are issued mostly by the Department of International Affairs (except for dormitory fees, sport course payments, or scholarship paybacks).

Library books

You need to return all books that you have borrowed from the university library three days prior to your Final Exam the latest, otherwise you are not allowed to take the exam (Academic Regulations Section 137/A/2).
The Educational Office of the Faculty gives the list of Final Exam applicants (name, Neptun code, date of exam) to the library. You are going to be contacted by the library if you have any relevant issues with them.

Personal data for the degree certificates (diplomas)

This semester there is no opportunity for checking your personal data in person at the offices. This way it is extremely important, and it is an obligation of students (Academic Reg. Section 36/2) to check in Neptun if your personal data is correct: full name, order of your names, birth name, place of birth, date of birth, and your specialisations connected to your study programme.

Graduation ceremony

Due to the emergency situation, there will be no Graduation Ceremony organised by the Faculty this summer. The delivery of the degree certificates is going to be announced later.

Extension of residence permit, plane tickets, validation of diploma

If you would like to use your Hungarian diploma in your home country or any other country, you have to go through an administrational process in order to validate your degree. You will get the details after your Final Examination.
It is important to plan ahead the extension of your residence permit. The validation process may take 2-3 weeks, so calculate your travel date and extension date like this.
