Leave of Absence
A leave of absence is time away from studies which a student can take in case of reduced productivity caused by acute diseases that require long-term rehabilitation treatment; exacerbations of chronic conditions or frequent diseases (more than one month per semester); anatomical defects that do not allow for restorative treatment during studies.
The maximum duration of a leave of absence is one year. If necessary, it may be extended for another year.
A maternity leave, childcare leave until the child reaches the age of three, and in case the child is ill and needs home care — until he/she reaches the age of six, are provided in accordance with the Labor Code of Ukraine.
First-year students are not eligible to re-start their studies.
