Insurances

Health insurance

If there are any changes in your health insurance, you must inform your health insurance company immediately and send this to Ansbach University of Applied Sciences electronically. Otherwise, you may be denied re-registration or continued studies.

You must also inform your health insurance company if you have been exmatriculated from Ansbach University of Applied Sciences and re-register for the next semester in another degree programme.

Liability insurance

Liability for damages

Ansbach University of Applied Sciences accepts no liability for students, guest students or diploma students for any damage caused. For damages to the property of the university caused by this group of persons (particularly also in laboratories, television studios, sound studios etc.), the person causing the damage must pay the university damages.

An automatic liability insurance does not exist!

Students are therefore strongly advised to take out private liability insurance. Usually students may be covered via their parents’  insurance. In the case of laboratory activities, etc., it may be necessary to clarify with the private liability insurance company whether it covers damage, for example, in the laboratory, television studio, recording studio and, if applicable, damage to borrowed items. Otherwise a special liability insurance should be taken out.

An insurance certificate must also be submitted again if you have been ex-matriculated by Ansbach University of Applied Sciences and are re-enrolling for the next semester, e.g. in another course of study.

Feedback/re-registration

What does "feedback" mean?
Feedback means registration for further studies. A new re-registration must be made for each semester and a SEPA mandate for the debit of the student union fee must be confirmed; otherwise, you will be de-registered at the end of the semester.

What is the student union fee?
Currently 42,- Euro have to be paid (02/2019). From the winter semester 2020/21, 52 € are to be paid.

Period of re-registration:
see schedule of the respective semester
→ Login to the HRZ portal (e.g. via "Login" on the homepage)
→ Menu Item "Study"
→ MyPRIMUSS
→ Study matters
→ Feedback
→ Confirmation of the SEPA mandate for the direct debit of the student union fee or, if applicable, new creation/change via "SEPA Mandate Administration".
→ Check "I want to report back."
→ Click on the "Feedback" button.
⇒ The message "You have reported back" appears.

Who has to confirm?
Every student has to re-register if he/she wants to stay enrolled. The re-registration must also be made if the semester in question is a practical semester or if it is a vacation semester. You must also be enrolled and thus re-registered in the period between the submission of your thesis and the determination of your degree.
If it is still unclear in the re-registration period whether ex-matriculation will take place ex officio before the beginning of the semester (e.g. completion of studies, ex-matriculation under examination law), please re-register as a precaution. If you then do not have to pay any fees, any overpayments will automatically be refunded. Please do not arrange for a return debit to be made to your bank. As a rule, the bank charges fees for this, which are then borne by you.

What is the connection between re-registration and health insurance?
Re-registration for the next semester must be refused if there is no proof of health insurance. Therefore, please note that if you change your health insurance provider, you must present a certificate of the new health insurance company.  

Reimbursement
If the fee is not required (e.g. due to ex-matriculation before the start of the semester) and the Studentenwerk fee has already been deducted, it will automatically be refunded to the direct debit account after the start of the semester. Please do not arrange for a return debit to be made to your bank. As a rule, the bank will charge fees, which are then borne by you.

Leave of Absence

The procedures governing Leave of Absence are set out in the statutes on matriculation, re-registration and ex-matriculation.

If wish to be exempted from study during an extended period due to special circumstances (leave of absence), you must apply in due form and time.

Form of the application:
The application for leave of absence must be submitted online in myPRIMUSS. The application must state the reason for the leave of absence in accordance with section 4. If necessary, the application must be accompanied by relevant evidence; Ansbach University of Applied Sciences can request such evidence if necessary.

Deadlines:
Applications
for leave of absence must be submitted no later than one month after the beginning of the semester; if the reason for leave of absence occurs after this date and was not foreseeable, the application can be submitted by 25 January for the winter semester or by 10 July for the summer semester. It is only possible to apply for leave of absence for one semester. Retrospective leave of absence for already completed semesters will not granted.

Reasons:
The application for leave of absence must be approved if there are important reasons that either hinder study or make it unlikely that a course will be completed by a given deadline. Grounds for leave of absence include

  • circumstances related to maternity which entitle a student to protection periods in accordance with the Act on the Protection of the Working Mother (Maternity Protection Act) or to parental leave or to care-givers’ leave for a close relative (Nursing Period Act),
  • a medical certificate (possibly from an official doctor) certifying that the student cannot study properly in the semester in question due to illness,
  • the student is studying at a university abroad,
  • the student has completed a voluntary internship,
  • the student is performing a voluntary service.

Economic reasons are generally not accepted.

Duration:
As a rule, students are granted leave of absence for a maximum of two semesters. Exceptions are periods of maternity leave, nursing leave and parental leave.

Please note that during a leave of absence

  • no academic studies and examinations can be undertaken at the university at which the leave of absence was granted,
  • Requests for extension of the repetition period must be submitted separately from the request for leave of absence.
  • Within the framework of the maternity protection period and parental leave it may be possible to complete academic studies or take examinations

BAföG recipients and other scholarship holders should contact Student Services (Studentenwerk) or the respective scholarship provider in advance. Students who are still receiving child benefit should seek advice from the child benefit fund before submitting their application for leave of absence.  

Foreign students who are not nationals of member states of the European Union should discuss the legal consequences with the Foreigners Registration Office responsible prior to applying for a leave of absence.

If you have any questions, please contact your contact person at the Student Services.

Ex-matriculation

As soon as ex-matriculation is implemented, student status at the university is terminated.

The regulations governing ex-matriculation are set out in the BayHSchG, in the statutes on procedures for matriculation, re-registration and ex-matriculation and the APO.

Ex-matriculation on application:

Upon application, you can withdraw from your studies at the university at any time, even during the current semester.

The earliest an application for ex-matriculation at a future date can be implemented is that day on which the application is received by the university.

  • Exmatriculation must be applied for using a form. Please state the reason for exmatriculation.
  • Submit the application to the Student Service.
  • You may have to return your Campuscard or other documents.

>>>APPLICATION FOR EXMATRICULATION<<<

Ex-matriculation ex officio:

Ex-matriculation is automatic, if, in particular, the following reasons apply:

  • The Payment of fees and contributions due upon re-registration is not proven
  • The health insurance certificate to be presented for re-registration is not submitted through your own fault.
  • A required examination is finally not passed.
  • Reasons that prevent a proper study programme (e.g. failure to achieve ECTS points limits; exceeding the maximum number of examination attempts - see also "All about examinations").
  • Misuse of matriculation or re-registration.
  • Other reasons which do not permit continued membership at the university (e.g. culpable of causing considerable damage to the university).

Study and internship abroad
Study abroad

A study visit or a work-related internship abroad is now part of the requirement profile for most management positions. Intercultural competences and language skills that can be used in negotiations are best acquired during a longer stay abroad. In addition to English, a second foreign language is becoming increasingly important for a future professional career.
According to a study by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), employers today place greater value on experience abroad than on a short period of study. Ansbach University of Applied Sciences therefore advises students to take advantage of the opportunities that are already offered during their studies, whether as a study semester at a partner university or as a study-related internship with an international company.
A study semester or year abroad not only broadens the subject horizon with an international component, but also consolidates and expands foreign language skills and contributes to the acquisition of intercultural competences. Last but not least, this serves to improve career prospects. The recognition of examinations taken abroad for studies at home prevents unnecessary extensions of the duration of studies.
Further information on studying abroad and internships abroad can be found on the pages of the International Office.
