Together with the application for additional time the student needs to fill in personal study plan (docx) including courses and a schedule of how the degree is going to be completed.
If there have been special reasons for the delay of studies, the student should also enclose a clarification of them (e.g. medical certificate).
The basis for the personal study plan is that the remaining studies continue at a pace of at least 30 ECTS per academic year. If the student wishes to compile a study plan with a slower pace of study, he/she will need to attach an explanation regarding the underlying reasons.
In case the student's master's thesis is not complete, the student must attach the thesis instructor's statement to the application. The statement can be an email from the thesis instructor, where the instructor states that the proposed schedule of thesis completion is feasible.
If the completion of the degree would require more than four semesters according to the study plan, additional time is nevertheless granted for a maximum of four semesters only. The remaining additional time must be applied separately.
Please, use the electronic form for study time application.
Medical Certificate can be returned to the Faculty of Law by mail:
