Registering to the Academic Semester

  • The student has to register at the beginning of each each Academic Semester. The registration process is online through the system OBIKAS.
  • There are three academic terms (Fall, Spring and Summer). Summer term is not a mandatory academic semester, you may register only if you want to take a course, albeit with an higher tuition rate per credit.
  • The time-span for the PhD program is eight academic semesters. It can be extended to twelve academic semesters. Further extension is not possible. Scientific prep and English prep are not counted.
  • If a student wishes to take a leave of absence for one semester, then this leave is counted as one semester in the time-span. In certain circumstances, such as presence of serious health problems (along with official evidence) or participation at a mandatory social or military service, then this leave will not be counted as one semester. Temporary leave due to, for example, a professional job requirement is not regarded as a valid excuse.
  • If a student does not register in four successive semesters, then OBIKAS access of the student is disabled until a valid English exam score is submitted to the Registrar's Office.
