Publication of the plain-language guide for students and conscripts postponed until autumn

Due to the coronavirus epidemic, it will probably not be possible to ship the updated plain-language guide for students and conscripts to schools, service points and other distribution locations this spring. In order to ensure the timely delivery of the new guide to all distributors, we have decided to postpone the printing and mailing of the guide until this autumn, most likely August.

Web pages written in plain language, which can be found at, have the same content as the printed guide, so information in plain language will be available online despite the delay. The pages for students are updated with the latest details on such topics as the student healthcare fee. A PDF version of the plain-language guide will be posted on
