A student must be registered as attending when they graduate. If a tuition fee liable student completes all their studies and submits their thesis by the end of the ongoing term for which they are registered as attending (for the spring term 31 July/for the autumn term 31 December) they can be granted the right to register as attending for an additional term by paying only the Student Union’s membership fee, for the sole purpose of graduating. In other words, a tuition fee liable student could apply during their second spring that they can register as attending for the autumn term by paying only the Student Union’s membership fee in order to graduate, on the condition that they complete all their studies and submit their thesis by 31 July.
Each student will need to apply for this right separately and the Student Services will consult their degree programme for the feasibility of their graduation plans.
Students who are granted this right undertake to submit their thesis and complete all their coursework by the end of the ongoing term (31 July/31 December) and not to attend any classes during the additional term. The thesis may be assessed and graded during the additional term, and students may also take an aptitude test or present their dissertation during the additional term, if required. Students undertake to submit a graduation request at the earliest opportunity. If a student is found to have completed courses during the additional term, they will be charged the full tuition fee for that term.
If you wish to apply for the right to register as attending for an additional term by paying only the Student Union’s membership fee, for the sole purpose of graduating, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
If you are granted this right and your residence permit is expiring, please apply for an extension to your residence permit for studies for half a year.
