I want to join the degree programme but I will be unavailable for an extensive period of time during my studies?

If there is a particular event in your life, which requires a period of time where you will have to be absent from classes, talk to us (ideally much in advance!) and we will be able to guide you! In case, of unexpected circumstances students are able to apply for an extension which will then need to be approved.
