If you are planning to submit a thesis in English in the Spring of 2021, you need to:

1 Think of a topic – possible topics and find a supervisor. If your thesis is directly teaching related, look for a supervisor from DELP or DEAL. If it’s more closely related to literature or language study, look for a supervisor from DES, DAS, or DELG. If your thesis is not directly teaching related, it still needs to include a chapter that discusses teaching aspects and implications.  

2 If your supervisor is from DELP or DEAL, you will need to hand in a Thesis Proposal to your supervisor by 6 March.

3 You need to hand in ’Szakdolgozati Témabejenető Lap’ in 3 copies. This needs to be signed by the supervisor, and by Szesztay Margit as ’szakfelelős’. 2 copies go to Hegyi Zsófia at the TO (Building A, Room 14), and one copy stays with Szesztay Margit at  DELP. You can get the three copies signed and stamped in Rákóczi 5. Room 409 at the following days and times (4 March 16.00-17.00, 9 March 15.00-16.00, 11 March 9.00 – 10.00, 12 March 15.30 – 16.15) http://tkk.elte.hu/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Szakdolgozati-t%C3%A9mabejelento-osztatlan-tan%C3%A1rk%C3%A9pz%C3%A9s_2.v..pdf

4 If you have problems finding a supervisor at DELP, you can write to Szesztay Margit and she can let you know who is still available.
