An interim semester means that a student is allowed to take a semester off (6 months) while remaining matriculated at the university.

Reasons for taking a sabbatical according to the law (Art. 48 Abs. 2 Satz 1 BayHschG) are in particular:

  • An officially confirmed medical condition or illness that keeps the individual from following a normal course of study
  • Maternity leave and/or parental leave directly before and after childbirth
  • Completion of a voluntary internship that is relevant to the course of studies but not required within the normal programme of study
  • Compulsory military service

Other reasons may be given to be closely evaluated as individual cases.
Financial difficulties are normally not valid as an important reason.

Requests and Information

This request for a sabbatical in the winter semester (starting October) must be submitted to the Centre for Studies by 15th October, for a sabbatical in the summer semester (starting March) applications must be received by the 31st March.

Please note

If you are planning to take a sabbatical, please let us know. However, during this time the student service fee of 52 Euros still must be paid.

Our Immatrikulations-, Rückmelde- und Exmatrikulationssatzung form is soon to be translated into English.
