What are the ways you can test if your work at the university is worth something more than grades? There are several possibilities for students who excel in their studies to improve and test their academic skills: local or national level workshops (talent show workshops, TDK) and student exchange programs to foreign universities (ERASMUS, Kellner, West-Virginia). These activities can result in getting an Institute award (Wodala, Thesis publication).
The Institute offers a downloadable course syllabus for each semester. This syllabus contains all the courses offered by IEAS structured as explained below. To download the current catalogue, please go to our document center and choose the document you wish to read from the Syllabus group (It is always the current syllabus, courses by instructors and courses by time and venue.)
Please, study our student guides which inform you about the structure of the programs as well as about possibilities and obligations at our document center. For those who write their major paper, BA or MA thesis, useful downloads are also listed there. The list and the documents are always the latest ones in effect at the time of download.
It may be useful to look into the list of previously defended ma theses. Perhaps you get some idea for yourself to find a thesis topic. You can also borrow these works from the department office. For details check the billboard of the institute! MA theses defended The Students’ Scholarly Paper Competition is a good entrance to the world of science and scholarship.

A great opportunity is to go to another university to study for a few months. This can be done within the framework of the ERASMUS exchange agreements of the European Union. The Institute has several links and exchange sites in a number of countries, e.g. Brno in the Czech Republic, Birmingham in England, Oulu and Turku in Finland, Göttingen in Germany, Milano and Verona in Italy, Cracow in Poland, etc.

At the IEAS Szeged, we are aware of the scale of change it entails to finish high school and start university. The differences in lifestyle, studying, facing problems, preparing for classes on a semester basis, and communicating with instructors might not be second nature to most of our students. It is for this reason that we offer two solutions for students at the IEAS who feel that they might need some help during their studies either because they seem to have miscalculated the effort needed to pursue their degree or they think they got into a conflictual situation that they cannot resolve:
– a Mentoring course (0 credit course) led by Zoltán Dragon (dragon), offered each semester to get consultations and help with studying skills on an ongoing basis
– a contact with a student and a faculty mentor (Cecília Fehér [anglisztika.szek.szte] and Zoltán Dragon [dragon])
Both offers garantee 100% anonymity – our aim with these offers is not to stigmatise or generate conflicts, but to resolve problems as soon and as effectively as possible. If you feel you need some help with finding the right way to study or are subject to unfair evaluation in a class, do not hesitate to contact either the student or the faculty mentor.
