Withdrawal from postgraduate school studies and loss of student status


Withdrawal from studies is irrevocable and results in the cancellation of the student’s university career to date. Withdrawal from studies does not, however, prevent the student from enrolling again, even in the same Postgraduate school. Students who withdraw from their studies are required to pay any outstanding fees.

To withdraw from studies, the student must:

  1. Make an appointment at the helpdesk of the Student Administration Office of the Postgraduate schools
  2. Submit the request to withdraw from studies duly completed
  3. Hand in their record book and a 16 euros duty stamp.

Loss of student status

Students enrolled in medical postgraduate schools lose their student status if they fail to pass their exam by the last official exam session.

Students enrolled in other medical postgraduate schools who do not pass the official exam cannot be admitted into the next year and must enrol as a repeating student.

Students can repeat a year once only; if they fail to pass the exam by the last official exam session of the year that they are attending as a repeating student, they will lose their student status.
