Depending on when during your study time you decide to interrupt your studies, various rules apply.
- Early interruption of studies
- If you discontinue your studies within first three weeks of the course (and have not obtained any credits), this counts as early interruption of studies and you can apply to the course/programme again in competition with other applicants.
- Interruption after three weeks of studies
- If you discontinue your studies more than three weeks after the course has started, you cannot apply to the course again. You can resume your studies if there are seats available by contacting the course or programme director. The credits you have already obtained are not affected and they remain in Student Ladok.

Consequences of interruption of studies
An interruption of studies could affect your residence permit, tuition fee, and ongoing scholarships. Your right to student accommodation may also be affected; check with the Student Union which rules apply.
If you are a tuition fee paying student with a residence permit for studies, your permit can be revoked if you interrupt your studies. The Migration Agency recommend us to inform you that they can revoke your permit for studies as the permit requires that you are actually studying. Learn more on the Migration Agency website for further information.
