Arrangements for resuming study

  1. An application to resume study may be submitted by a person who has interrupted study after the completion of at least the first year of study.
  2. Study shall be resumed at the beginning of a semester. This condition shall not apply to those resuming study who have been struck from the register of students for failure to submit the diploma thesis by the specified deadline or for failing the diploma examination.
  3. Depending on the length of interruption, the Dean shall decide to recognise credit for courses obtained by the applicant before the interruption of study, shall indicate the semester for which the applicant may be registered when resuming study or may refuse permission for the applicant to resume study.
  4. A person resuming study shall be required to take a readmission examination. Such an examination shall be chosen by the Dean from among those already passed by the person before the interruption of study. The Dean may also specify additional courses to be completed. The level of fees for any classes to be taken before resuming study shall be determined by the Dean on the basis of the rules laid down in the relevant decision of the Rector. The readmission examination and examinations or other types of assessment for additional courses to be completed shall be conducted by academic teachers appointed by the Dean.
  5. The conditions for resumption of study by persons who were struck from the register of students for failure to submit the diploma thesis or for failing the diploma examination shall be laid down in a decision taken by the Dean. The Dean may specify additional courses to be completed together with the procedure for their completion and may require that a new diploma thesis be prepared. The Dean may also exempt the person concerned from the readmission examination.
