A critical attitude to information, however, requires effort and constant work on yourself.

Therefore, if a student is expelled in the first year, he will not be able to recover. The rector (director) of a higher education institution has the right to restore him immediately to the second year, provided that he hands over the academic debt before the start of classes.

So, for example, in LNU the student who was expelled in the second (summer semester) can be restored to the second course, but it will be enrolled only for the next calendar year after expulsion. A similar rule applies in other higher education institutions, but some of them impose an additional limit on the amount of academic debt, which usually cannot be more than two or three disciplines of no more than 10-15 ECTS credits.

Is it possible to recover on a budget?

People who studied on a budget have a priority right to be reimbursed to the budget, but only if there are vacancies. If there is no such place during the restoration, then you will have to recover on a contract basis, or look for vacancies in other higher education institutions where there is the same specialty.

Some educational institutions, when deciding on the restoration of the student’s budget, take into account the reason for expulsion. Therefore, if a student has been expelled for failing to complete an individual curriculum (ie, through academic failure), he or she is reinstated, as a rule, on a contractual basis. Preference for reimbursement to the budget will be given to the student who received academic leave for health reasons, in connection with studies in foreign institutions of higher education, etc.

Is it possible to recover in another university?

It is possible to recover for training both in the same institution of higher education, and in another. However, students who have studied in accredited non-state higher education institutions (ie, those that do not meet the requirements approved by the Ministry of Education and Science) are not eligible for reinstatement in state higher education institutions.

Is it possible to recover for another specialty?

Master’s students can be reinstated only in the same specialty in which they interrupted their studies. With regard to the reinstatement of undergraduate students to another major, because the law limits the size of the academic gap, higher education institutions generally allow students to recover only in the same or a related major within one area of ​​knowledge.
