General information on graduation
For deadlines and specific information on the Thesis, Final Examination, and graduation requirements, please browse the menu points above.

Personal data for the degree certificates (diplomas)

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.

There will not be a comparison of data before printing your diploma. Your personal data will be indicated on your diploma and diploma supplement as it is registered in Neptun. Please, update your data if necessary. Please, provide an email address, which is suitable for participation in an ELTE Teams call, in case of a possible online examination. You can check or change your email address in Neptun under My data/Contact information.

If  there are changes in your personal data, please report it to Ms Emese Kertész coordinator, since your diploma and diploma supplement are generated from Neptun.

Graduation ceremony

Usually the autumn semester ceremonies are in mid-February, and the spring semester ones are in mid-July. Further information is always provided by personal messages, and on the News page of the faculty website.
 
It is extremely important to add a mailing address to your Neptun, though, in case you could not participate. The University sends the documents to the mailing addresses automatically. Even if you have a permanent and a temporary address registered, the mailing address is necessary also.
 
For registering a mailing address, log in to Neptun --> go to My data --> Contact information --> Addresses tab --> click on 'Add new' --> choose the mailing address option --> register the address.

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.
