Leave of absence

If you are unable to carry out your studies for a limited period, you may apply for leave of absence (study break). You may apply for leave of absence three weeks after the course has started at the earliest. Prior to that, you may apply for deferment of studies.

Facts about leave of absence

  • During leave of absence, you are not entitled to student grants.
  • You cannot register or re-register for courses within the programme during your leave of absence.
