Academic leave of absence and study break and return to study 

If you need to make a break during your studies on a programme, you must apply for an academic leave of absence to have a guaranteed place on the programme after the break. If you make an unannounced interruption of studies, you have no guaranteed place to resume your studies. 

If you want to terminate your studies on a programme, you need to apply for a study break. Once you have been granted a study break, you can't resume your studies or complete unfinished courses within the programme. It is therefore important that you wait to apply for a study break until all courses are complete. 

If you want to terminate your studies on a course, you can report the discontinuation of studies via Ladok for students.

Read more about academic leave of absence and study break on the University's student pages.

If you apply to resume your studies before the date listed in the decision granting you an academic leave of absense, you are guaranteed a place on the programme for the semester specified in the decision. If you have been away without applying for a leave of absense, or applied for a study break, you can only resume your studies if there is space available.  

Transfer of credits

The Higher Education Ordinance sets out rules on the right to transfer credit for previous studies. A transfer of credits should be applied for in good time before the start of the course. You can see the learning outcomes that need to be fulfilled for the course in the course syllabus. If you apply for a tranfer of credits for more than one course, an application has to be made for each course. 

Read more about tranfering credits on the University's student pages.
