Thesis upload technical issues

  • You can upload only 1 document/file to Neptun (zip or pdf).
  • If you upload your thesis in a zip format, the zipped folder has to contain both the Thesis and the Certificate of research.
  • If you upload your thesis in a pdf format, please, insert the Certificate of Research after the title page.
  • If you use a pdf-editor, you can insert the Certificate of research as an extra page into the pdf.
  • If you do not have a pdf-editor, we suggest that you insert the Certificate of research, after the title page, into the Thesis you created as a Word (docx/doc) document. After that, save it as a pdf by clicking on ‘Save as type’ where you choose ‘PDF’.
  • Another option is to convert the docx/doc file that contains both the Thesis and the Certificate of research, into a pdf file.
  • Please, name the file the following way: (Your_Name_Neptuncode_szd_2022_23_1). Example: Smith_Peter_XCVRQ2_szd_2022_23_1

We suggest that you watch this video, made by the Academic Board, on how to upload your Thesis to Neptun.
