Approved Leave from Studies and Non-completion of Studies

Application for approved leave from studies

If you have been admitted to studies at the undergraduate or graduate level and wish to take a break in your studies with the aim of resuming them at another time, you can apply for an approved leave from studies. Once granted an approved leave from studies, this means that you are guaranteed a place to the course for a specified semester if you sign up for the resumption of studies in accordance with the rules set out in the Rules for study administration at first- and second-cycle levels. The rule is available in the Legal framework for Umeå University.

If you are not granted an approved leave from studies, you can read more in the rule concerning the possibility of notifying a non-completion of studies with the announced intention of resuming studies within a year.

The application for an approved leave from studies is submitted to the course or programme coordinating department, or equivalent. Contact the study advisor (or equivalent) at the course or programme coordinating department for more information.

Notification for non-completion of studies

If you notify non-completion of studies, this means that your admission to the course or programme in question will cease to apply and that you are not guaranteed a place if you wish to resume your studies at a later course or programme time.

Before you complete and submit the notification, it is important that you read the rules for the non-completion of studies in the Rules for study administration at first- and second-cycle levels in order to, among other factors, gain information on how a notification for the non-completion of studies with the announced intention to resume studies within a year affects your possible resumption of studies. In the rules, you will also find information on what you need to do in order to resume your studies. The rules are available in the Legal framework for Umeå University.

The notification for a non-completion of studies is submitted to the course or programme coordinating department/equivalent.
