Leave of Absence
According to the legal requirements of the Higher Education Act, students can be granted an holiday semester for important reasons. An important reason is a stay at a foreign university.
With the beginning of the winter semester 2015/16, the new comprehensive examination regulations came into effect, which allows students to complete examinations at RWTH Aachen even during a holiday semester (or practical semester) (§6 Abs. 8 ÜPO of 18.02.2016).
- Is not counted towards the standard period of study
The holiday semester is handled by the study secretariat. Detailed information and contacts here.
