Educational Data System



General guide

The regulation applies to all of the programmes offered at the higher education institutions cooperating with ANU, to programmes with legal student status (bachelor programmes, master programmes, specializations) and to people involved in the programmes with student status (hereinafter: students) and to the employees organizing the programmes, regardless of their nationalities.


Order of admission

An application must be submitted with a copy of the school leaving exam. 
​After prior notification, an entrance exam takes place which contains a psychological and personality assessment, and an English knowledge test (language certificate is not required because after two years, students have to take their international language exam in our examination center. Those whose knowledge is not at the required level can attend integrating classes.)

Enrollment under student status is subject to admission or take-over. The legal student status commences with the registration. If the student does not accomplish the requirements of the enrollment at the beginning of each semester, the legal student status will not commence.
The enrollment commences by the acceptance of FOI from the first day of the respective semester (from 1 September to 31 October, or 1 February - 31 March). The enrollment must take place on 1 September or on 1 February and it lasts for 365 days from the first day of a semester to the following first day of the following semester. FOI signs an agreement with the enrolled student, the parties can withdraw within three days. The student is responsible for the consequences of misrepresentation.

During the registration period an announcement must be made by the student, whether he/she continues his/her study in the following semester or suspends the legal student status.

The conditions of the maintenance of the legal student status and the term-activation of the semester are the followings:
The arrears from the previous semester and the financial liabilities for the respective semester must be accomplished by the last day of the registration period.
The legal student status will be terminated:
if the agreement is terminated by the student, on the day the declaration is submitted and the arrears are accomplished, or if arrears are not accomplished by the student by the last day of the registration period.
The termination day of the legal student status is attached in the agreement.
The student is liable for announcing any change in his/her data to the Registry Office.

Exam regulations

The exam schedule is to be published one month prior to the exam period. The exam schedule contains the planned durations of the exams, the deadlines and the exam fees. The Registry Office must announce exams for each student.  The student must apply for the exam in writing. The rector is responsible for the announcements.

Admission to the exams is granted only to students that have met all their obligations. Application for exams is required only for students whose student contracts states so. The Registry Office also notifies the student in this regard. Admission to the exams can only be granted to students with active student status.

Exams are always taken in writing and not necessarily at the premises of the institution. The assignments may contain up to 4500 words.  A margin of 10% is allowed above this word count. During the preparation of the assignment – besides attending the lessons – students have the opportunity to consult with the teachers who assist the compilation of the assignments. The student bears full responsibility for the content and quality of the formal requirements of the assignments.

Deadlines for submission of the assignments is possible once per each module and is subject to payment of a surcharge of EUR 100. The deadline may be postponed by a maximum of 2 weeks which is to be requested by the student in writing. Submitting assignments beyond the established deadline is not possible. Failure to submit the assignment entails re-attending the respective academic year.

Our teachers provide academic assistance for the preparation of the assignments, however, they cannot write the assignments on behalf of the students, neither can they correct them in terms of spelling, language accuracy, style, syntax etc. These are to be undertaken by the student – inoing an external lector if necessary. The duties of the teachers and supervisors are limited to assessing the assignments based on te criteria of ATHE and CTH and submitting these for external assessment. The final assignments submitted to the assessor may be returned for correction once.

In case the internal assessor indicates the same issues as the teacher did beforehand, the student is obliged to pay a correction surcharge of GBP 50. 

In case of suspicion of plagiarism, the Head of Department will request the student to defend the thesis.

In case plagiarism is proven, the assignment is automatically assessed as failed and the student must pay the established fee for retaking the exam. Consultation may be requested free of charge as long as student status is active. Following the termination of the student status, consultation may be requested for students who could not finalise their work on time. In this case HUF 30,000 is charged for consultation per month, including four occasions. Additional occasions will be charged at the rate of HUF 6,000 per consultation. Consultation is defined as any personal or electronic appointment, its duration is 45 minutes.


Procedure of the assessment of the assignments leading to the diploma:

  • The student prepares their assignment and sends the final version to the Registry Office.
  • The assignment is checked by the appointed teacher. In case it is not considered as acceptable, it is returned to the student, indicating the content to be corrected.
  • The student has the right to consider their assignment as final at any point of the consultation.
  • The declaration is to be submitted in writing to the institution. This launches the assessment process during which the student may not perform further modifications.
  • Upon approval of the assignment, the teacher assesses it and forwards it to the internal assessor who assesses the work of the student and of the teacher. In case it is not considered acceptable, it is returned.
  • In case the internal assessor approves the assignment, it is submitted to the accreditation centre where the appointed verifier assesses the assignment. In case it is not considered acceptable, it is returned and to be reviewed, entailing payment of the re-take charge of GBP 200. the student is obliged to submit the corrected assignment by the established deadline and to pay the re-take fee in any case. Failure to meet these obligations entails re-attendance of the academic year along with the payment of the annual fee.
  • In case the accreditation body approves the assignment, the certificate is sent to the institution which must be handed over to the student.
  • Assessment of the assignment takes 2 to 4 months in case no correction is required.
  • In case correction is required, this period proportionally increases.
  • Upon rejection of the assignment re-submitted to the accreditation centre, the student must re-attend the academic year and pay the annual fee.
  • Failure to meet this obligation entails automatic termination of the student status.


The current exam regulation is effective from the date of the signature to its withdrawal. ANU and FOI may amend the content of the regulations at any time and must notify the staff and the students accordingly in writing.

For this purpose, the student must inform the FOI of the change of their contact details within 8 working days of the change. Failure to do so entails obligatory effect of the new document for the student.
