Information on the submission of the thesis in the spring semester of the 2020/2021 academic year
In the spring semester of the 2020/2021 academic year thesises must be uploaded electronically to Neptun exclusively, and the evaluation process also takes place in Neptun. The general deadline for thesis submission is 20 April 2021. Incances where the deadline is different:
- The applied part of the thesis on the psychology MA programme is to be submitted until 15 May 2021.
- Portfolio type theses (Psychology BA programme) are to be submitted until: 2 June 2021.
Uploading is available till 23:59 on the relavant day. In case you already submitted your thesis in an earlier semester but didn't take the final exam then and you want to take it this semester, you still have to upload your thesis now.
In Neptun, the line of the thesis work assigned to the corresponding training can be seen in the menu item Studies>Degree thesis/Thesis application. If several theses have to be submitted in the given training (eg. in the case of the MA in Psychology or in the case of teacher training), these theses will be published on a separate line with a different upload deadline based on their title.
Click on the "Upload degree thesis" button to start the upload process. When uploading the thesis document, you must provide:
- the Final thesis title (then click Next and enter further details in the next window),
- Keywords (the most important terms in the thesis that can help with library search),
- an Abstract of the thesis (summarizing the essential content of the thesis in a few paragraphs).
The thesis, together with all its attachments, attached declarations and certificates, must be uploaded in a pdf or a single file compressed in the .zip file format. (For help compressing files to .zip format, see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14200/windows-compress-uncompress-zip-files.)
Mandatory documents related to the thesis (the necessary forms can be downloaded from https://www.ppk.elte.hu/en/student_administration/forms):
- Declaration of originality: it is not necessary to sign the declaration, the text of the declaration can be inserted into the dissertation as text or filled in with the thesis as a separate document (together with the thesis in the pdf or .zip file);
- Confirmation of thesis consultation: the supervisor's statement in email is also acceptable as proof.
The possible lack of attachments does not hinder the process of uploading the thesis. A thesis with its attachments can be uploaded in Neptun with the “+ Upload file” button, and then the upload must be completed by saving the actions with the “Save files” button. Once closed, the final title can no longer be changed.
Encryption. Anyone who has received permission to encrypt the thesis because it contains business secrets or personal (special) data must select the “Titkos” checkbox in the "Confidential" line when uploading. (By default "Nem titkos" is there.) Together with the thesis, you must upload the consent of the owner of the secret or the data subject to the data management in the pdf or in the compressed .zip file – if this is necessary. (However, it is not allowed to upload a thesis document containing a state secret or a service secret, it must be submitted in the traditional form on paper, for the handling of which you can contact the Student Affairs and Registrar's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
The uploaded thesis file can be modified by uploading a new document by the specified deadline, before wich the original must be deleted. This can be done by click on the + button at the end of the "Filename" line. It is not possible to upload after the deadline. For students who have been granted an extension by the Academic Committee at the individual request of the student, the Student Affairs and Registrar's Office will individually modify the upload deadline in Neptun.
The supervisor of the thesis uploads the evaluation to Neptun, from where the student can learn about the evaluation. The student will be notified separately of the upload of the evaluation via Neptun.
