The main rule is that all studies should start at the semester and the time that is intended in the admission decision.
Those who cannot start their studies according to the above, may be granted a deferment if special circumstances exist. Special circumstances can be social, medical or other special circumstances like, child care, military service, student union assignments or postponed leave of absence for study purposes according to the law (1974:981) about employee’s right of leave of absence for studies.
The time of deferment can be up to 18 months unless there are particularly circumstances for a longer time span.
Students that have been granted a deferment must apply again to the studies before they start, according to the accepted rules.
The deferment decision is made by an admission officer.
The application for a deferment is done using an assigned e-form in the Student Portal.
