Leave of absence

Sabbatical leave and maternity leave

Legally, the Study Progress Reform does not affect your possibilities of taking a sabbatical leave or maternity leave. In other words, you can go on leave as before with or without a reason. In practice, however, a sabbatical leave may have some undesirable consequences for your studies and your State Grant. Before you apply for sabbatical leave it is recommended that you talk to the study counselor at your study programme, and prepare a study plan which makes it possible for you to return and be study-active immediately upon your return from sabbatical leave.
