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 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.
