As of September 2006 most Hungarian institutions of higher education will launch BA (Bachelor of Arts) programmes. At the same time the 4--5-year university degrees and the 4-year college (főiskolai) degrees will phase out, that is, you cannot enter these programmes any more. For more details about the BA curriculum, check this page.
You have to take both courses in (a) later term(s). However, course B does not increase the number of courses dropped, according to ETVSz §46 (3), i.e., you may attempt course A in two, but course B in three further terms.
These courses (coded AKN-) are a subset of the "regular" English MA courses. Nevertheless, some studens manage to to arrange a weekly timetable in such a way that they can attend courses simultaneously with their full-time job. Check the relevant courses offered this term.
Those who were admitted in 2002 have no non-English obligations, their previous degree is recognized as such. From 2003 onward you have to collect 10 credits of such courses, including the philosophy, rhetorics, IT triplet if your degree comes from outside ELTE. (You also may have to do P.E.)
Anything. The Institute Council has decided (on 4 March 2003) to relieve the previous obligation that supplementary students cannot write their thesis in methodology. They, however, have to submit a copy of their previous degree thesis to the relevant department.
MA English majors in the credit system (ANN, AKN) may decide to specialize in an "extreme" way: taking all their 3XX courses from one track. Eight tracks are offered:
|361--368||English applied linguistics|
|371--372||Canadian and Québec studies|
|379--380||Medieval English studies|
However, you may decide to collect your 24 credits from any of the tracks, there are absolutely no constraints on that.
None. According to a decision of the Institute Council (18 Feb 2003) students do not have to take any specialization courses in the field of their thesis. (Of course, it is a wise decision for students to take as many such courses as they can.) Accordingly, the "specialization course report form" loses its significance. Note, however, that departments and supervisors have the right to require thesis writers to do certain tasks, like taking a given (set of) course(s).
Get or download the form labelled Tanegység-befogadási kérelem from the Registrar (Tanulmányi Osztály). Work out which ELTE course(s) could be waived on the basis of some other course(s) you have previously taken. Approach the teacher at ELTE responsible for that course and convince him/her that it should be waived for you (for this you should show your documents about your previous studies). Fill in the form and have the relevant courses signed by the teacher(s) you convinced. (If you have done the previous course at SEAS—e.g., as an AFN student—you may omit the teacher responsible's signature.) Visit the relevant credit person (for English and American majors, it is Judit Borbély) with the signed form and have him sign it too. Get the form back to the Registrar.
All of your ``philological'' courses (i.e., 111, 112, 141, 142, 211, 212, 213, 214, 215, 216, 217, 219, 231, 235, 241, 242, 243, 244, 245, 246, 259), and your language courses according to the following chart:
That is, if you have completed the course(s) on the left, the course on the right is waived for you. Crucially, AFN-291 does not qualify for ANN-299!
No. But it is crucial that you understand what the same code means. Two codes are the same if they are identical up to the slash they contain. In this sense ANN-212/a and ANN-212/b qualify as the same code, so you can't take both — not even in different terms, while ANN-312.13 and ANN-312.14 are not the same, you can take both.
