Compulsory course in your first semester

We have a compulsory course in your Computer Science BSc program that is called Learning Methodology (IP-18fTMKG).

What is this course about?

This course is where you meet a group of peers, you have guidance by a mentor throughout your first semester and get to know topics related to university life with a trainer.

What will happen?

Mentor Class
You meet a group of your peers and you get guidance from a mentor teacher throughout the semester on how to navigate the university system in Hungary and Hungary in general. Feel free to express your questions and areas you may need extra information on. Your mentor teacher is there to help to the best of their knowledge in the first semester at the university.

It is a class in an interactive group setting which is led by a professional trainer. Starting your life in Hungary will have several changes and new situations. New physical environment, new people, new culture and you'll take on new roles. You may find learning is different compared to what you are used to. You meet new teachers every day, you will be facing new types of tasks. Your unfamiliarity with processing big amounts and new types of information in a foreign language may require new skills you have not discovered yet. We believe this training will help you to recognise all these skills you didn't know you've been possessing all along and give you new tools, techniques, tips and tricks to try and master.

Filling out a questionnaire at the beginning and at the end of the semester for research purposes. It takes about 30 minutes. There are no right or wrong answers. We are interested in your opinion.

Looking forward to meeting you as you begin your University Life in Budapest at the Faculty of Informatics, ELTE!
