However, if   a student drops a subject without any replacement / withdraws from the Summer School, the deposit   will NOT be refunded, except only if he / she drops a subject / withdraws from the Summer School in   order to attend the regular Summer Term and / or fulfill Work-Integrated Education (WIE) as required   by his / her programme, which clashes with the Summer School schedule.
