Suspending Your Studies While Abroad
It is in general possible to suspend your studies for the duration of your time abroad. This means that this period of time will not be counted towards the limit of 8 semesters (bachelor) / 6 semesters (master) of study! You can still have courses taken abroad recognized by the LMU and counted towards your degree.
A suspension of studies may be obtained at the "Studentenkanzlei". More information regarding requirements and the application process for a suspension of studies can be found on the Studentenkanzlei's website (German).
