Enrollment Renewal and Semester Contribution

Each semester, students must confirm renewal of their enrollment by transferring the semester contribution. The enrollment renewal deadlines for the summer and winter semester are February 15 and August 15 respectively.



Tuition fees are charged in addition to the semester fee as soon as the so-called “study credit” of 14 tuition-free semesters has been used up.


Leave of Absence

Parental leave, illness or release from course work are good reasons for taking a vacation semester during studies. But even without reason, you can take a leave of absence for 2 semesters. No course work may be undertaken in the semester when you are on leave, (exception: parental leave).


Change of Subject or University

Once a study decision has been made, it is fortunately not binding: You may notice during your studies that you have not made the right choice.
