continue to apply. After interruption of studies, the Dean will decide in case of need on the assignment of the student to the appropriate unit of studies. If during interruption of studies a change is made in the study plan applicable to the student concern, the Dean will specify which study obligations the student must fulfil and terms for their fulfillment in line with these regulations and the relevant study plan: in this connection, the Dean may also impose on the student the obligation to take bridging examinations within a certain time period.
When the period of interruption of studies expires, the former student has the right to re–register for studies. If the reasons for interruption of studies no longer apply, the Dean may terminate the interruption of studies acting on the written application of the former student concerned even before the expiry of the previously determined period of interruption of studies. If the former student does not re–register by the initial registration date set, the procedure is as described in Article 5, sec.5.
With the exception of cases where the reasons are particularly serious, and especially reasons of health, studies may be interrupted at the earliest after completion of the first academic year of study.
The longest permissible period of interruption of studies (article 54, sec.1 of the Law on Universities) is a period that together with the real period of studies does not exceed the maximum period of studies. The real period of studies is defined as the period that has elapsed from the date of registration at university minus the period of interrupted studies.
If a student on the Doctoral Studies Program requests permission for the interruption of studies, and provided that the student has not been the subject of disciplinary procedures in which the disciplinary committee has proposed the sanction of exclusion from studies, and the Dean has not by his decision imposed lesser sanctions or returned the matter to the committee, the Dean will agree to his/her request. Studies may be interrupted for a minimum period of one year. The longest possible overall period of interruption of studies is 5 years.
