Students unable to continue studies due to illness, pregnancy, parental leave may temporarily suspend their studies for up to one year or longer provided for in the laws of the Republic of Lithuania (infant care up to 3 years, etc.). During the study period, it is possible to temporarily suspend studies more than once only for the listed reasons.

A student who has failed exam(s) or credit(s) during the main session or has an academic debt may terminate their studies voluntarily only due to illness and upon submission of a certificate from the medical commission.

During the student’s academic leave, the student will keep the right to the student’s status and the ability to continue the studies at the state-funded place if he/she studies there before taking the academic leave (during this period the state-funded study place is not occupied).
