Holiay Semester - Yes or No?
You are generally entitled to apply for up to two holiday semesters in a row for study purposes. This applies to all courses of study. OVGU's registration regulations contain further details. It is not obligatory to apply for a holiday semester for the duration of your ERASMUS study trip, but it is possible. During a holiday semester, it is not possible to complete or be credited with academic achievements, unless you apply at the relevant examination office to be credited with them in spite of the fact that you are taking a holiday semester. It is not worthwhile going to the trouble of filing two applications if you are undertaking an ERASMUS semester with a firm plan to complete a course and academic achievements. Nonetheless, whether you choose to take a holiday semester or not, you must still be registered with OVGU during your study trip abroad and must still report back before the respective deadlines, in order not to compromise your ongoingand consequently the creditability of the academic achievements you accomplish abroad.
