Additional enrolment from the subsequent years is not required during the training period. In the further semesters students are only required to indicate wheter they inted to contuinue ther studies in a given training period (Active semester) or suspend their studies (Passive semester). In case of passive semester students do not have the right to apply for active student status certificate, cannot apply for student card, and extend the residence permit.

Please do not forget! Only those self-supporting students are able to register for the semester who paid the tuition fee.


If the student set his/her status to PASSIVE, that is and interruption of studies, the scholarship holder is not entitled to receive the scholarship and the accommodation allowance until starting the next active semester and the disbursement is also interrupted with the suspencion of the student status. During his period, Tempus Public Foundation and the host istitution do not have any responsiblities to support the scholarship holder. However, the scholarshop holder is entitled to enjoy health ceare services, if she/he stays in Hungary.

The scholarship holder has to stay in Hungary during the study period, otherwise the student's scholarship is terminated. The students have to inform the higher education institution if she/he spends more than 10 days consecutively abroad during the study period.



During the designated period, the student has the opportunity to register for courses in accordance with his / her curriculum. Each curriculum includes the courses required to successfully complete the studies, which must be completed within the training time. In addition, some curricula provide opportunities for enrollment in courses outside of your major. These are the so-called elective courses. It is important that these are also part of your curriculum, you must take courses corresponding to the given credit value, but it can also be courses outside your training, like lectures in sports, language training or another discipline.

After the enrolment procedure you will be able to take up your courses in Neptun. In case you are not able to register for your courses for some reason on your own, you must ask for help from the administrative staff of the responsible departments (e.g. Department of International Relations, Department of English Studies etc., - The adminstrators of the Departments and the administrator of the Registrar’s Office are different people with different authorities.)

Subjects in the student’s curriculum can be found using the filter: Subject type = Subjects from curriculum. For selecting Campus courses set the filter as Subject type = All other subjects in the institution. Subjects either not present in one’s curriculum, nor accepted in the campus course programme can be taken only by filling in the request for subjects of other major or in another language.

It is important to emphasize that it is only possible to take a course during the designated period. After that, you have the opportunity to register for the course with a separate application and payment of a fee.

The Immigration Office needs a certain type of certificate, a different one is needed for health insurance... So if you need a certificate, please write to, please write down your name, Neptune code and the purpose for which you are requesting the certificate and in what language do you need it. These are important pieces of information that help us in our work

The University's Code of Studies and Examinations (CSE) allows you to have courses completed at other higher education institutions recognised for your current degree programme. Course recognition is a multi-step administrative process.


What will you need?

  • A certificate from your previous institution of the courses you have completed and a detailed description (transcript + syllabus).
  • Curriculum of your current training programme
  • The form approved by the Faculty, which you can download here.


  1. The first step is to contact the departmental administrator or the head of the training programme. Make an appointment with them and take the transcript with you. They will be able to help you decide which of the courses you have previously completed they can recognise for you, and they can also help you with the details (code, name, credit amount) of the target subject.
  1. Fill in the form with the information they give you. All information on the form is mandatory. Some countries use a different grading system from the five-point scale used in Hungary. In this case, to facilitate the work of the Registrar’s Office, please send them an online description of the grading system at
  1. Return the completed form and transcripts to the department and ask the administrator to help you obtain the necessary signatures. Once the signatures are obtained, you can either bring the completed form to the Registrar’s Office yourself or ask the department administrator to send it to the Registrar’ Office via internal post.
  1. On the basis of the form received, the staff of the Registrar’s Office will record the recognition in Neptun by the end of the semester. You will find the recognised courses in the Term special gradebook rows (Studies/Gradebook menu).


Main rules

One course can only yield credit once.

  • “Acquisition of certain knowledge content shall yield credit only on one occasion.”

Credits can only be recognized if there is at least a seventy-five percent overlap between the contents of the course you completed and the course you want it to be recognized for. Hence, if you wish to complete a course from another institution (not the University of Pécs), you need to submit the syllabus of the completed course.

  • “The credit shall be recognised if there is a seventy-five percent overlap between the compared knowledge contents.”

(CSE Article 54 Section 2)

The deadline of submitting the course registration request to the Registrar’s Office is the last day of the semester’s course registration period.

  • “The student shall be entitled to request the recognition of the accomplishment of the academic requirement until the end of the course registration period.”

If you miss the deadline stated above, your request can be rejected without further consideration.

  • “The [Committee] has the right to reject the requests submitted after the end of the course registration period without further consideration referring to the missed deadline.”

(CSE Article 54 Section 4)

The credit amount of the recognized course needs to be the same as it is in your curriculum. Therefore, the credit amount of the recognized course can differ from the one you completed. However, the grade must be the same as the grade you received when you originally completed the course.

  • “The credit value of the recognised academic performance shall be equal to the credit value of the curricular requirement which is qualified as completed; nevertheless, the grade obtained cannot be modified on the recognition of the courses.”

In the case of certain training programme, the curriculum prescribes a so-called elective specialization for students. It is essentially an in-department training program where the student can deepen their studies in a given topic within a pre-determined credit value. The module is usually chosen either at enrollment or at the end of the second semester. The specialization procedure, like the course registration, takes place on the Neptun. After logging in choose the menu Administration than Module selection. We will always remind you by email about this.

Admission is decided by the departments.

Attention! It is not possible to change the training program at any time afterwards. Changing the training program - during the specialization process - is possible only for compelling reasons, with the permission of the dean and the consent of the relevant supervisors.
