  • Reregistration for transition from a Bachelor’s to a Master’s programme

    If you are currently a student on a Bachelor’s programme at Leibniz Universität Hannover and have applied for a place on a Master’s programme at LUH, please reregister within the reregistration period after applying by transferring the fees for the coming semester for the Bachelor’s programme.

    If your application for a place is successful, you will receive admission to the Master’s programme, and will be transferred accordingly once you have accepted the place offered to you. If you do not receive admission to your chosen Master’s programme, but have already completed your Bachelor’s degree programme, any fees paid will be refunded on request.

  • Must I pay the full semester fee even if I am on leave?

    If you have reasonable grounds for going on leave, you must submit a request within the reregistration period. If your request is granted, you will not have to pay part of the semester fee.
