Course Registration

Students are required to complete their course registration through the University Information System (Infosys) during the registration period of each term, as indicated in the Academic Calendar, as well as in the Student Records Manual.

Only those who registered in the registration period or at least 3 days before the first class meeting can participate in the course.

A course may be dropped on the day of the second class-meeting of the respective course without any charge through Infosys.

The Department strongly discourages late registration for and/or late dropping of courses. However, in cases when this is necessary, please see the MA/LLM Coordinator. In case of late registration and/or dropping a course a fee of 5,000 HUF applies. In justified cases (e.g. late cancellation of a course) the Program Chair may grant an exemption from the late registration fee.

The latest day for dropping a course or altering registration in any way is the Monday of the last teaching week before a respective midterm and end term exam period.  Students who neither take the final exam, nor drop the course will receive an Administrative Fail.

Pre-requisite courses have to be completed for Grade. Where offered, successfully passing a pre-test qualifies as passing the pre-requisite course. A successfully completed pre-test does not yield credit for the course, unless otherwise stated.

For courses which span across more than one term students need to re-register separately in Infosys in each term. (For example, for a course which starts in Fall term and finishes in Winter term, students need to sign up for the same course in the registration periods for both terms.) The credit(s) for these courses count to the credit limit of the term where the exam takes place or the course ends.

In order to meet the requirements of interactive post-graduate education, class enrollment is limited. As a general rule, classes offered by the Department of Legal Studies are limited to 20 students from the Department, plus an additional 5 students from outside the Department (including visiting and exchange students). However, Professors may prescribe further limitation on class size as indicated in the course offering. Professors may, upon their professional consideration, allow enrollment for additional students provided that enrollment is not precluded by other relevant departmental considerations

Students are strongly encouraged to prepare their study plan for the entire academic year during the first weeks. To do so, students are encouraged to consult with their Program Chair, faculty members as well as the MA/LLM Coordinator.
