The maximum duration of study indicates how much time you have to complete your degree programme. The maximum duration of study for Master’s degree students at Faculty of Natural Sciences and Faculty of Technical Sciences is the prescribed period of study plus six months. You can see how your maximum duration of study is prescribed in the academic regulations. You can find your academic regulation in the menu under 'Teaching' or at mystudies.au.dk.
If you do not complete your degree programme within this time frame, you will automatically be withdrawn from the degree programme.
In order to avoid withdrawal due to exceeding the maximum duration of study, we recommend you to be aware of your study progress throughout the whole degree programme. Also be aware, that the way you plan your study programme can affect whether you have time for three exam attempts within your maximum duration of study.
We recommend contacting the student counsellors, if you are in doubt about how to plan your degree programme best - and always if you have a specialised study programme. Find more information under 'Student Counselling' in the menu.
You can always see when your study programme must be completed at mystudies.au.dk.
