Extension of Studies for Residence Permit Purposes
With this form you can apply for a 3 month or a 6 month (1 extra semester) extension after your expected graduation date.
Here are your options:
- I plan to take my examination(s) and/or submit my thesis after July and before the end of the semester (August 31, 2020), but my residence permit also expires at the end of the semester and therefore need to extend for 3 months (November 30, 2020) to receive all my grades and diploma. With this option you will receive a confirmation letter you can take to the Immigration's Office (BSU) before the end of the semester to apply for a temporary extension of your residence permit.
- I need an extra semester to take my examination(s) and/or submit my thesis and will therefore need to stay enrolled in order to receive an enrollment confirmation to extend my residence permit. University fees will apply but no tuition.
Important note: If you still need to complete or retake modules/courses you need to apply for a regular extension of studies and submit a study plan via this Form for undergraduate students and this Form for graduate students.
