If you are granted leave of absence during your semester abroad, your regular semester level will be fixed. Please note that no new exams or registrations for a thesis may be made during a leave of absence. You cannot participate in any courses or lectures. However, make-up examinations can still be taken. During your leave of absence existing deadlines still apply. We do not recommend applying for a leave of absence if you have not yet taken the GOP, i.e. the fundamental examinations and orientation examinations which have to be completed within the first year of study. To keep full flexibility you may not apply for leave of absence, as semester times abroad do not fully correspond with TUM times. Meaning you might still be able to attend exams before or after your semester abroad.
