Course structure at Corvinus

Based on the type of sessions there are four different „types” of courses:

1. Some courses have theoretical and practical sessions:
If you see both theoretical (E) and practical session(s) (G), available in Neptun you have to select (put a tick for) both the theoretical course (only one per course!) AND for one practical course (more can be offered) to successfully save it.

2. Some courses have only practical sessions (G) and the two sessions are offered back to back.
G1 and G2 and G3 etc. signify different practical classes you can choose from based on the time it is offered OR based on who teaches that class.

3. Some courses have only practical sessions (G) and the two sessions are offered at two different times.
G1 and G2 and G3 etc. signify different practical classes you can choose from based on the time it is offered OR based on who teaches that class.

4. Some courses have only one theoretical session (E) in a week.

  • Theoretical session (denoted with E) = lecture: it can be bigger and can take place in a big auditorium. In this case the leacturer mainly talks about the material. There is less interactive exercises in class.
  • Practical session (denoted with G)= seminar: it takes place in a normal class size (can vary from 14-30 persons). These classes are more interactive and have more practical exercises and sharing.

Intensive Week Courses
Normally, intensive week courses are ones for which students receive the full course credit, but they are held intensively in the frame of a single week, with 5-6 timeslots per day. Assignments (pre- and post intensive week) may be given and/or exam may take place. Unfortunately, at Corvinus some professors use the intensive week to teach part of the course intensively, while the other half of the course is taught during the regular study period.

If you plan to take an intensive week course (this should be included in the comment section of the course), please double check to see whether it is truly an intensive week course or whether there will also be clases throughout the semester. In the „Comments” part of the course lists, we have indicated which are intensive week courses.

Neptun and Cusman

Neptun

Corvinus University uses a Unified University Study System – called NEPTUN – which you will be using during your studies here (course registration, checking your course schedule, if applicable, payment of financial items – e.g. Library Card, checking offered grades at the end of the semester, registration for exams, etc.).

The NEPTUN system for students can be accessed here.(click on the British flag to change to English). Your should use your personal Neptun account Login name and password (you will receive these via e-mail at least one week before the preliminary course registration period).

Cusman

In order to be able to access certain services at Corvinus (e.g. course syllabi, WiFi, university e-mail address, central authentication, VPN access, access to Microsoft 365 services, etc.) you have to set up your CUSMAN ID. When you set this up, it will also generate your official Corvinus student e-mail address that you will have to use during your studies at Corvinus (when writing to your coordinator, your professors, etc.)

You will have to use your dedicated university e-mail address to contact us in any cases. Your e-mail address will be generated and will be xxxx.yyyy@stud.uni-corvinus.hu .

To set up your CUSMAN ID: please click on the “Freshmen click here for first-time registration and read and follow the instructions. Important: you will have to accept both the AUP and the terms and conditions of usage.

Access to course syllabi

  1. You will need to log in with your CUSMAN ID to be able to check out and download the course syllabi. In the search subjects box, enter the exact code or title of the course syllabus you are looking for.
  2. Then click on the magnifier glass (search button).
  3. When it shows the subject, click on the arrow button. It will take you to a new window.
  4. In the upper right hand corner you will see an Adobe sign (PDF).
  5. Click on that to download the course syllabus.

Preparing for the semester (before you leave home)

Medication

  • If you’re on regular medication, you need to make sure that you have enough prescribed medicine for the whole semester. This is important as some medications might not be available here in the EU/Hungary (or they may be sold under a different name and may possibly have slightly different ingredients) and it is important you have the correct medicine with you and the right amount.
  • If you plan to have some medicine delivered to you later the semester – please keep in mind that if your medication is not permitted in the EU, it will not be allowed in the country (your package would be upheld at customs until the required documents are presented – this could be a really long process).
  • Consult with your physician!
  • Ask your doctor/counselor how else you should be preparing yourself for your trip? (E.g. Will your doctor be available on the phone if needed? What does your doctor think what you should do if you don’t feel well? etc.). Make sure that you come here with a strategy in case of the – hopefully unlikely – event that you don’t feel well. Sometimes it is just easier to think these through when you’re well. If you have any chronic illnesses, we suggest with you your medical history and a note from your doctor on the type of medication you are using.

What can Corvinus do for you?

  • Special needs: If you have any illnesses or learning disabilities that may have any affect on your academic performance, Corvinus has the resources to provide most of the “common accommodations” Should you have any special needs, please write to disability@uni-corvinus.hu to check out what sort of documents you need to receive these same accommodations (if possible) during your studies at Corvinus.
  • Counseling services: Corvinus have counselors on staff (who are fluent in English) who can support you during difficult times.
  • Note though that our counselors are not qualified to prescribe any medications. In case you need to have someone prescribe you medicine we have a medical partner; Firstmed where students can go if they need medical attention. For this service though you’ll need to pay – that can later be reimbursed by your health insurance if your plan covers you for this service. Nevertheless, the best solution is still to have enough prescribed medicines with you.
