Standard period of study
The examination and study regulations of each degree program include a curriculum of study. The number of semesters specified therein for complete study of the degree program in attendance constitutes the standard period of study for this degree program. The standard period of study is thus related to the study program and is specified in semesters.
At the TU Ilmenau the standard period of study is as follows
- 6 or 7 semesters for Bachelor programs and
- 3 or 4 semesters for Master programs.
Individual standard period of study
To avoid pandemic-related disadvantages for students registered at German universities in the semesters SS 2020, WS 2020, SS 2021 or WS 2021, the individual standard period of study was introduced.
For affected students, the individual standard period of study takes the place of the actual program-related standard period of study.
Occurence of the fee obligation
The obligation to pay the fee for exceeding the standard period of study occurs as soon as the consumption of semesters exceeds the credit of semesters.
Consumption > Credit
The legal basis is the ThürHGEG.
Students who are required to pay a fee receive a fee notice from the Student Office immediately before each re-registration period for the following semester.
Postpone or waiver of the fee obligation
There is the option to
- postpone the fee obligation for the first due date or
- waiver the fee obligation in case of repeated due date.
The prerequisite is the timely submission of one of the following applications in the re-registration period for the following semester (see semester key points).
