Registration at the faculty
Registration week (one week prior to first tuition week)
The international office of the faculty organizes welcome days for incoming exchange students on the registration week (which is prior to the first tuition day). It is strongly advised for international students to arrive in this period during which they need to visit the international office to be officially enrolled at the faculty.
International students are asked to take their passport or identity card with them, and sign the registration form. After this procedure the student status will be activated in our electronic system, and will have the right to get your student ID. It is this period in which home university documents (such as arrival certificate, original learning agreement, etc.) are signed by the international coordinator of the faculty.
Course registration for visiting students
In the first week of tution, visiting international students have to finalize the list of the chosen courses. On our Course Registration Form, visiting students have to indicate their courses (taken at any faculties of ELTE) and have it signed by the instructor of the courses. Students will electronically be registered for the courses on the basis of this form.
Electronic study systems - NEPTUN and CooSpace
The electronic study system used at ELTE is called Neptun. The system is used for academic administration (e.g.: registering for courses and exams), finances and communication. The login name and the password, which can be changed later, are sent to students before the start of the semester by e-mail. For visiting students, registration is made by the International Office during registration week. All changes in one's course list (dropped courses, newly taken courses) have to be reported to the international office.
In two days' time after visiting students have registered to the courses, they get access to the Coospace system which allows teacher and students of a course to communicate with each other, upload work material, readings, handouts and homeworks, to write tests etc.
The username used for Coospace is the same as the one used for Neptun, original password is either the same as the Neptun password or made up from the birth date of students as follows: 1) last two digits of the year of birth 2) month (two digits), 3) day (two digits): yymmdd. Once logged in, different "scenes" (forums) will appear, that are connected to the individual courses and which need to be activated at the beginning of the semester by the given lecturer.
