If you forfeit your studies, your university career will be automatically annulled and you will loose your student status, even if you have paid your fees.
Students enrolled in or after academic year 2011/12
Your studies are forfeited if you do not gain any credits for five consecutive academic years, unless the regulations of the course of study specify otherwise.
Students enrolled in or before academic year 2011/12
You forfeit your studies, if you have not taken (successfully or otherwise) an examination for eight years, or since your last year of enrolment (even following a change of course), or as a student repeating studies. The situation most favourable to the student is considered.
Your studies will not be forfeited if you have passed all your examinations/undertaken the learning activities specified in your study plan and you only have to take the final examination, unless the regulations of the course of study specify otherwise.
If you have forfeited your studies:
- you can request reimbursement of any fees paid after the date of forfeiture;
- you can request certificates of your academic records;
- you can re-enrol (without any reductions for merit) and request recognition of the examinations taken. See the page: Returning to study;
- In case of doubt, contact the Student Secretariat of your course of study, then complete the forfeit form and submit it with your university registration book.
