Rules for extension

  • You must have submitted all your regular assessments to the Graduate School when you apply for the extension.
  • The Graduate School can only approve an extension of your enrolment. If you wish to apply for an extension of your employment, we ask you to contact your employer in order to discuss the possibilities.
  • The Graduate School does not distinguish between full time and part-time studies during an unpaid extension period. If you are in an unpaid extension and wish to study part-time, you do not need to inform the Graduate School.
