Financial support for force majeure situations

Financial support is possible in case of study delay due to certain specific circumstances.

The Committee Personal Circumstances (CPO) will assess your application on behalf of the Executive Board. Here you will find a short explanation about the procedure.

When you still have questions, please contact the CPO registry or a student counsellor.

  • Students under TOM will receive the final decision on their application after the resit of the concerning academic year.
  • Students solely enrolled for a Premaster programme or enrolled at the ITC Faculty, are only eligible for this regulation in case of an insufficient feasible programme.
  • Scholarship students from countries outside the EEA, students receiving a supplementary grant from DUO and those who pay a higher tuition feeĀ can apply for a higher amount of monthly support; all other students receive the same monthly support.
