Registration to BME

This step is fully handled by the university, they will send you an e-mail about it.
This page only contains some general information about the process.


Initial Registration

UPDATED: 2023.07.25

Registration at BME is organized by the Central Academic Office (CAO). They have prepared a newsletter containing all the relevant information about the way of registration and the necessary documents. You can find the newsletter for the 2023/24/1 semester here.

The registration consists of two parts. The first is online, during which you have to upload the necessary documents to Neptun as described in the newsletter. The second part is the in-person registration when the documents required for enrollment are carefully checked in person. In case of falsified/fake documents or documents with questionable origin, registration will be refused from the applicant. After registration, your student status certificate will be given to you which is a necessary document for your residence permit application at the Immigration Office.

For the most up-to-date information, please always check the website of the Central Academic Office of BME:
