At the first class of each course taken registered students receive the course outline from the
teacher. Apart from a brief description of the content, the subject, the weekly allocation of
materials and the reading list, the outline also specifies the requirements for completing the
given course. The instructor is free to decide the appropriate basis of assessment in accordance
with the nature of the subject.

Most subjects require an examination to be taken during the midterm and the final exam
period. In addition, the teacher may prescribe, for example, an oral report, may assess the
student’s performance in class, and may set written homework assignments and special
homework essays. All these requirements must be announced in advance, together with their
percentage weight in calculating the final grade.

The assessment of a student’s work is the sole responsibility of the teacher, and he/she has the
exclusive right to determine the mark. The mark is decided within the 16-week study period of
the term. In exceptional cases, there may be an extended exam period.

Examinations take place according to the conditions described in the course outline. The
duration and the nature of the examination are decided by the teacher of the subject.
Absence from an exam counts as an unsuccessful attempt unless the student can certify some
unavoidable reason. It is the task of the teacher to judge such absence.
Within the designated extended examination period the teacher may provide an opportunity
for make-up exams missed for unavoidable reasons during or at the end of the term.

One of the most important rules is that the course outline of a given subject (which is handed
out at the beginning of the term) should define accurately the method of evaluation and the
percentage of the element that make up the grade. Evaluation should be made in such a way
that every student has an equal chance of attaining the highest grade. The specific requirements
of a particular subject must not conflict with the rules defined in this Catalogue.

On the basis of the requirements fulfilled- in accordance with the standards set by the teacherstudents receive a mark at the end of the term.
In order to be in accordance with the international grading systems the University suggests
using the above system for the assessment of the students’ work.

In the Hungarian grading system, the equivalents are the following:
Excellent (5)
Good (4)
Satisfactory (3)
Low Pass (2)
Fail (1)

During their studies students do not only have to achieve a satisfactory average, but they also
have to gain credit hours.
Based on international expectations 1 credit is equivalent to 30 working hours.
According to the curriculum a completed semester is equivalent to 30 credits.
Each semester in the Bachelor Programmes is built up of credits.
The University courses are worth between 2 and 6 credits.

At the end of each term students receive a grade report. This contains all the courses taken in
the given term (including all the courses from which the student has withdrawn), regardless of
what mark the student received in the subjects at the end of the term. Grade reports are sent
to students not more than two weeks after the end of the extended exam period.
