What do I have to do if I want to change my study programme?
This can only be done within the same fields of study, using a form to be submitted through Neptune, where you must explain why you want to change your study programme. You can change your study programme only at the same level of training, no more than once. For more information, see the Study and Examination Regulation. 
I applied for a scholarship at the time of my admission, but it failed. In this case I no longer have access to free education?

If you fail to qualify for the first free position but you have been admitted to Corvinus, you will be eligible to apply for the Corvinus Scholarship again in the subsequent year within the framework of reclassification, based on your academic performance. Those who are not eligible for free education can apply for state-funded, interest-free pre-financing through the Student Loan Centre.

What does the HÖK answer function mean and what can I use it for?

What is an application for equity?

There are two types of equity, dean’s and rector’s equity. Both are subject to a fee and they must be assessed within 15 days. The purpose of a request for dean's and rector's equity is to judge disputes which are contrary to any point of the Requirements for Students and are not the consequence of the student’s fault.

When can I apply for equity?

What happens if I fail to complete a subject?

You have two more opportunities to register for a failed subject in the semester when it becomes available again. In a special case, when you have not used all six available exam options, you can request registration for the subject for the fourth time by applying for equity. A given subject is usually offered annually; and it is important to note that failure to complete optional subjects has no consequences, and you do not have to re-register for them.
