What is a Study Unit List and how to read it?

Understanding the Study Unit List might be challenging at first. It contains all the obligatory and elective courses you will have to take to be awarded a BA degree.

The Study Unit List contains bundles of information for an ideal BA student. The following is a real-life example, taken from a Study Unit List, with explanation of the various fields.










Hangtani alapozó

Foundations of Phonology







1 – code (always use this code when searching for a course)

2 – name of study unit: Hangtani alalpozó (Foundations of Phonology)

3 – semester when offered and ideally taken (this course you should ideally take in the 2nd semester)

4 – K: lecture (‘kollokvium’ in Hungarian; the opposite is G ‘gyakorlat’ (seminar/practical class)). Lectures given by SEAS end in an odd number (before the decimal): e.g. ANG‑317 and AME-311.28 are both lectures. Seminars end in an even number (before the decimal), so ANG-242 and AME-322.17 are both seminars.

5 – k: obligatory (‘kötelező’ in Hungarian; the opposite is v ‘választható’ (elective))

6 – hours/semester: 15 hours/semester = 45 mins/week

(you may find the following useful as well: 30 = 90 mins/week, 45 = 135 mins/week, 60 = 180 mins/week)

7 – credits (this particular study unit is worth 2 credits)

8 – prerequisites: in (brackets) = weak prerequisite, no brackets = strong prerequisite

NB: weak prerequisite = the course and its prerequisite may be taken in the same semester (the above course, for example, may be taken in the same semester with FLN11-101). If the prerequisite is failed, the course for which it is a prerequisite will be also be failed and the grade deleted by the Registrar

strong prerequisite = the prerequisite must be successfully completed in one of the previous semesters, i.e. prior to taking the course for which it is a prerequisite
