On December 16, 2020, the Saxon state parliament passed the Education Strengthening Act, which includes § 114a in the Saxon Higher Education Freedom Act. Higher Education Freedom Act.
As a result of this amendment, the individual standard period of study will be extended by an additional semester for students who were enrolled in the summer semester 2020 or the winter semester 2020/21, respectively, and who do not claim a semester off for this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the coming into force of the Saxon Standard Period of Study Ordinance of 29.04.2021 and its amendment of 27.01.2022, students who are enrolled in the summer semester of 2021 or the winter semester of 2021/22 and are not on leave of absence will receive an individual standard period of study that deviates from the standard period of study and is extended by a further semester in each case.

A separate application is not required in these cases.
