Academic calendar

The academic year is divided into two semesters:

Winter Semester (WS)      October 1st  to March 31st

Summer Semester (SS)    April 1st to September 30th

Each semester is divided into a period of approximately 15 weeks during which classes take place called the Vorlesungszeit and a period when there are usually no classes called the vorlesungsfreie Zeit. Whereas the semester periods do not vary, the period of the Vorlesungszeit may differ from year to year. The exact dates you will find in the list below.
In the WS, the Vorlesungszeit is from the middle of October to the middle of February and in the SS from the middle of April to the middle of July.

Please note that examinations and block courses very often take place during the vorlesungsfreie Zeit.
