Within 30 days of the receipt of the certificate on the successful final exam and the language exam in English the diploma is issued and given out by the Faculty at the graduand’s special request. Otherwise, the diploma will be awarded to him/her at the graduation ceremony of the Faculty.

Award requirements: Language exam in English (level: B2, type: complex) or GCSE exam or a language certificate of the same level and type and a good command of Professional English according to Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1178/2011 (03/11/2011) which lays down the conditions on professional pilot training.

The Professional Pilot Bachelor’s degree alone does not entitle its holder to pursue a career as a professional pilot. One of the award requirements is holding a pilot licence. This licence can be gained after having passed the theoretical and practical exam within the accredited examination system of the Aviation Authority of the National Transport Authority.
The diploma is an official document decorated with the coat of arms of Hungary which verifies the successful completion of studies in the Professional Pilot undergraduate program. The diploma contains the following data: name of HEI (higher education institution); institutional identification number; serial number of diploma; name of diploma holder; date and place of his/her birth; level of qualification; training program; specialization; mode of attendance; place, day, month and year issued. Furthermore, it has to contain the original signature of the Dean (or in case of his/her indisposition the Vice-Dean for Education) and the seal of HEI.

If the candidate does not hold the certificate on the successful completion of the language exam in English in the final exam period, the diploma will be issued after the final exam period. In this case instead of the Dean, the Vice-Dean for Education is also allowed to sign the diploma. The University keeps a record of the diplomas issued.
If the candidate has failed to present the certificate on the successful language exam in English, a certificate on the completion of studies will be issued by the Faculty. The document does not contain any reference to qualification, it merely proves that the candidate has taken a successful final exam. The Faculty keeps a record of the certificates issued.
