Please note that a leave of absence could affect your residence permit, tuition fee, and scholarships. Your right to student accommodation may also be affected; check with the Student Union which rules apply.
Leave of absence or sick leave?
Please note that leave of absence is not equal to sick leave. If you get ill during a shorter period you should report sick leave – not leave of absence.
Leave of absence with a guaranteed place
Approved leave of absence means that you have a guaranteed place in your current programme/course after the break. In order to be granted leave of absence with a guaranteed place, you must have special reasons for the study break. Special reasons may be social, medical or relate to parental leave, military or civilian service, or student union assignments etc.
It is important that you submit supporting documents that are proving your reasons, in order for Halmstad University to be able to assess your application.
Leave of absence without a guaranteed place
If there are no special reasons for your absence, you may take a study break without a guaranteed place. In this case, you may only resume your studies if there are available places in the programme/course after the break.
