Thesis upload technical issues

  • You can upload only 1 document/file to Neptun (zip or pdf).
  • Please, name the file the following way: (Name_Neptuncode_szd_2023_24_2). Example: Smith_Peter_XCVRQ2_szd_2023_24_2
  • The maximal file size you can upload is 200 MB.
  • The maximum number of characters you can enter in the “Abstract” field is 500. If you enter more than 500 characters in the “Abstract” field, you will get the following error message in Hungarian: “Az entitás érvénytelen attribútummal rendelkezik. A(z) Extra2 értéke túl hosszú (Jelenlegi: …, Megengedett: 500).” If you get this error message, shorten the text in the “Abstract” field. (It is no problem if the text in the “Abstract field is different from the actual abstract in your Thesis document.)
  • We highly recommend that you start the Thesis upload at least 10-15 minutes before the deadline, as entering the title, abstract, keywords, and uploading the thesis file are time-consuming processes.

We suggest that you watch this video, made by the Academic Board, on how to upload your Thesis to Neptun.

In order to make the “Thesis admission request” button available, the necessary settings must be adjusted in Neptun. As a result of this technical process, students who have already registered for the Final Examination in previous semesters might get a system message in Neptun, which states that their Thesis admission request has been rejected. This is just an automatic message the system generates when the “Thesis admission request” button is enabled. Please, ignore this message! Following this message, the “Thesis admission request” button becomes available in the „Studies” menu under “Degree Thesis/Thesis application”.

Thesis evaluation

The grades and evaluation of your Thesis will be uploaded to Neptun some time after the submission of your Thesis. When it is uploaded, Neptun will send you an automatic system message. Follow the guide how to check the results.
