But what is a TDK exactly?

The Scientific Student Associations Conference (“Tudományos Diákköri Konferencia” – acronym in Hungarian: TDK) is organized once or two times every academic year at most of the Hungarian universities.

The Scientific Students Associations Conference provides a public forum for student publications which go beyond the core syllabus and represent a high scientific standard. Our aim is to assist the scientific and professional career of the authors and to help improve scientific thinking and discussion. The theses are completed with the help of a consultant and the students present their papers in sections similarly to scientific conferences. The papers and presentations are judged by a professional jury, according to requirements and standards of scientific publications.

  • TDK has no pre-requisites
  • A TDK thesis can be prepared by several people. Several authors could produce a high-qualiy paper with less energy, and the presentation can be easier if you don’t have to stand alone in front of the audience and the TDK judge.
  • It is possible to participate in the TDK from year to year, either with a new paper or by continuing the topic fo the previous year
  • It can be a good opportunity for preparing a high-quality thesis on professional confidence
  • It can mean extra points in case of further education or scholarship applications
  • Cash reward
  • End of the conference if you succeded you can go to NATIONAL TDK CONFERENCE called OTDK
