Leave of Absence

Parents who are students at TU Clausthal can request a leave of absence. This means taking a short break from studying and enjoying parenthood. According to the Admission Regulation (Immatrikulationsordnung) of TU Clausthal students have the right to take a leave of absence due to “pregnancy, maternity protection or care for a child in times in which they would have had a claim on parental leave if they were employed” (Admission Regulation (Immatrikulationsordnung) § 9 subpara. 3)

The current application form for a leave of absence can be found with the documents of the Student’s Secretary Office.
