Talented students still completing their secondary education can be permitted to attend lectures. Decision about the admission of secondary students to these early studies in accordance with Article 77 (7) BayHIG is made jointly by the secondary school and THWS.
Secondary students can then take leave of absence via the head of school. Attending courses within the chosen degree programme at THWS is the substitute for missed lessons at school and is considered a school event. The decision about how many lessons students may miss is made by the secondary school.
