Study rights and academic matters

​Demarcation of study right concerning studies started since 1.8.2005

Upon request the Faculty may grant the student additional time for completing an unfinished degree.

  • If your study time expires 31.7., the application time is 1.-31.3.
  • If your study time expires 31.12., the application time is 1.-31.10.

Also an already expired study right can be returned and additional time granted if the student applies for it and presents an acceptable personal study plan that has been accepted at the department. In these cases a re-registration fee of 35 Euros will be charged.

A personal study plan including all the study attainments missing from the degree must be enclosed with the application. If the thesis is the only attainment lacking from the degree, the statement from the thesis supervisor is to be enlosed with the application. 

If the student has particular reasons for the slow progress of the studies, a clarification (for example a doctor's statement) must also be included. The personal study plan should indicate progress of at least 40 ECTS/academic year.
