Approved leave from and non-completion of studies

Approved leave from studies

If you wish to take a break in your studies you can apply for an approved leave from studies. You must have specific reasons to be able to get an approved leave from studies granted. Therefore, it is important that you specify your reasons when applying.

Once granted an approved leave from studies you are guaranteed a place to your study programme for a specified term if you sign up for the resumption of studies in due time.

 

Non-completion of studies

If you want to interrupt your studies you can notify non-completion of studies. By notifying non-completion of studies you lose your place at your study programme. After that, you are no longer guaranteed a place if you wish to resume your studies at a later time. By notifying non-completion of studies you may however give another person the possibility to be offered a place at the programme.


If you follow one of our summer courses and want to interrupt your studies within 3 weeks after the start of the course you do this on the student web by signing in with your Umu-id. Read more on how to do an "early" interruption of a course. If more than 3 weeks have passed after starting the course and you decide to interrupt your studies you shall instead use the form notification for non-completion of studies.

Since we usually have a large number of applicants to the summer courses offered each year we rather see,  have you been admitted to one of them, that you decline your place before the start of the course would you choose not to participate. That way we have a chance to offer your place to someone on the waiting list hoping to get a place.
