During Your Studies
The UdK Berlin is currently still in the process of clarifying the semester fees for the 2023 semester, so please do not transfer any re-registration fees for the 2023 semester without being asked to do so. We currently assume that we will be able to make a statement on this matter in the coming week and would inform you.
Please be patient a little longer. We thank you for your understanding.
Your Registration and Examinations Office (IPA)
The period for re-registration for the winter semester 2022/2023 is from 11 July 2022 to 15 August 2022. Grace period (with late fee): 16 August 2022 to 30 September 2022.
As from winter semester 2014/2015 reminders to re-register will only be sent per email. Therefore, you urgently need an UdK account.
If you do not have an account yet, please make the relevant application via the self-service portal of OASE (www.oase.udk-berlin.de/userportal) – in case of any problems with your UdK account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Via your UdK account you can also change your postal address personally at www.vdl.udk-berlin.de and make sure that important documents reach you in good time. Re-registration is completed automatically, if fees and contributions are paid into the account of the Berlin University of the Arts within the deadline indicated above.
- Please let the IPA know in writing about any change of specialist teacher.
- The same applies in case of re-assignment to a different institute or department.

The registration fee and the late charge can not be refunded, once you have matriculated or re-registered.

If transferring money from abroad: Please make sure that your bank transfer includes acceptance of all due costs (OUR – sender pays costs).
The Semesterticket is valid as a ticket in the tariff zones Berlin ABC for six months (1.4. to 30.9. or 1.10. to 31.3.) and also entitles you to take a child under six, luggage, a dog, a pram or a bicycle with you free of charge.
The Semesterticket is non-transferrable.
An exemption from the obligation of the social contribution and from the semester ticket can be granted in case of academic leave, studying abroad, an internship or for students in a special social situation. (Please give and provide evidence of the applicable reason in your application).
Further information and application forms are provided by the Semesterticketbüro:
With their OASE user account of UdK (www.oase.udk-berlin.de/account) students can register in the Campus Management Portal of UdK Berlin with the purpose of changing the address and in order to use functions of study and examination administration.
Detailed information on the Campus Management Portal can be found under www.oase.udk-berlin.de/campus-management-portal.
If you can't attend any courses in a particular semester, for certain reasons it is possible to apply for anacademic leave during that semester.
Payment of fees is still necessary. At best, you may be exempted from the social contribution (see above) and from the Semesterticket, leading to a reduction of fees. Leave is only granted for one semester at a time and no more than twice throughout your studies. Exceptions – in particular with respect to the length of leave when spending time abroad – must be applied for separately.
Application for a semester leave must be submitted by the end of the deadline for re-registration at the latest. Leave in the first or second semester is only granted for important reasons. Leave semesters are not counted as course semesters but are counted in your total of university semesters.
Application forms for academic leave/exemption from fees are available in the Registration and Examinations Office (IPA) or as <link service formular-center allgemeine-formulare>Download.
The form can be directly filled out on the computer. Please print all three pages! If you aim to get an exemption from the fees along with your academic leave please turn to the colleague responsible in the IPA.
From now on, the UdK Berlin will no longer ask for the reason for part-time study. Therefore, no corresponding proof needs to be submitted.
The IPA, to whom the part-time application must be sent by e-mail or post, will inform the degree programme about the application and, if necessary, the programme will agree on a study plan with the student (important for individual lessons and teaching assignments in the degree programmes). It is therefore advisable to agree on an appropriate study plan with the degree programme before submitting the application and to attach it to the application.
Students who require a visa for their stay in Germany should, if possible, clarify with the Berlin State Office for Immigration (Landesamt für Einwanderung) before applying for part-time study at the UdK whether their reason for part-time study is sufficient so that the existing visa does not expire. It is recommended to get this in writing.
The Berlin State Office for Immigration (Landesamt für Einwanderung) is authorised to find out the reason for the desired part-time study and to obtain proof of this.
Please note: The change in the scope of your studies per semester (part-time studies) must be reported to the Berlin State Office for Immigration (Landesamt für Einwanderung). The UdK cannot guarantee that your visa will remain valid after changing the scope of your studies.
The form you will find in the Formular-Center.
