At the beginning of the semester, there is a BSME academic orientation which all participants are required to attend. Students who wish to take a BSM mathematics course is required to attend the BSM academic orientation, which is typically held on Friday before the first day of classes.
The BSME semester starts with a trial period of three weeks, when you can sit in as many classes as you wish. By the end of the trial period, you need to register for the courses that you actually plan to take.
The registration is done online using the BSM/BSME registration software. You will receive your login and password via email by the second week of the semester. For security reasons, please change your login and password immediately the first time you use the system.
Your online registration must be approved by the Hungarian Director, after meeting them in person.
Note: You will be allowed to register only for those courses which you attended during the week of the registration, that is, the third week of the semester.
Course Registration (online program)
The BSME office will register the courses you are taking in the BSM/BSME registration software. You will receive your login and password via email by the second week of the semester. The registration software allows you to double-check your courses and final course grades.
For security reasons, please change your login and password immediately the first time you use the system.
Auditing a course
You may decide to audit a course instead of taking the course for a grade.
- Courses with an audit do not count for credit.
- Double check audit requirements with the instructor of the course. By default the requirement is to attend all classes, no further coursework is required.
- Auditing a course will not give you a full learning experience, we recommend this option only in special circumstances.
There are two ways to audit a course.
- If you are sure from the beginning that you only want to audit a course, you may register for the course and request the audit option immediately (see #2 below).
- You may change a course that you are taking for a grade to an audit at any time during the semester, using the BSM/BSME registration software. (Go to My courses → Select the course in question → Click for audit request at the bottom of the page.)
You also need the approval of the instructor of the course. They will do this electronically and you will receive an email when your request is approved.
Note: It is possible to request an audit upon receiving your grades at the end of the semester. Such a request must be submitted to the Hungarian director via email until the set deadline.
Dropping a course
Before dropping a course, please contact the instructor and the Hungarian Director.
To drop the course, request it online via the BSM/BSME registration software. The request dropping a course link is located on the homepage of that course.
- Go to My courses → Select the course in question → Click for drop request
To finalize the drop process, you need the approval of the instructor of the course. They will also do this online and you will receive an email when your request is approved.
Failure to follow the above procedure will result in a NA (non-attending) grade for the course that will appear in your BSME transcript, considered by many home institutions as Fail.
Towards the middle of the semester you will receive a Midterm Assessment Grade (MAG) for each course which reflects your performance in the first half of the course.
At the end of the semester you will receive final courses grades.
You will receive an email notification when receiving a grade, and you can also check it using the BSM/BSME registration software:
- Go to My courses → Select the course in question → Study information
In person students will receive a Grade Report Sheet at the Farewell party, which is a draft (unofficial) copy of their BSME transcripts (you will have the option to request and audit for any course via email until the set deadline).
Attendance in BSME classes is required and participation is expected. Both will factor into your course grade. Please organize your travels and other activities in a way that they do not conflict with classes. If you need to miss a class, you must obtain the instructor’s permission in advance. (Naturally, if you have health issues, simply stay home and rest until you are feeling better, but please let the instructor and the Hungarian director know.)
