Part Time and Leave of Absence

Master's students at the Department of Physics may apply for an extension in the form of part-time studies, leave of absence or a short extension. Different rules and deadlines apply for the different kinds of extensions. Read more about this in the menu below.

Part time studies

You can apply to do your masters part time. The programme council can approve up to 50% part time. Valid reasons for applying for a part-time program may include teaching assignments, employment, organized student activities of a certain magnitude, a caretaker role, or chronic illness. Written documentation is required. The application form must be completed and signed by the supervisor and yourself and delivered to the program coordinator. Part time is only approved for the current or future semesters, not for past semesters.

Forms used in case of illness

Here we use a common UiO-form, you will find more information about it on the web site.

You have to choose the correct faculty (The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences) and institute (the Department of Physics), choose master’s degree, and fill in the subject code for your master’s degree as shown below.

Programme/Area of study Course code
Master of physics FYS5960
Master of Electronics, informatics and technology EIT5960
Computational Science - Physics CS5960PHYS
Computational Science - Materials Science CS5960MASC

The online form handles sensitive information in secure manner.
