General Semester Dates
The semester dates are the same for every year:
Summer Semester: 18 Feb. – 31 Oct.
Winter Semester: 15 Aug. – 31 March
Within these semester dates, regular degree-seeking students and students on further training programmes are covered by student insurance and confirmations of enrolment are issued for these periods.
The teaching weeks define the period within which classes are held and this may vary slightly per academic year. Exam periods may be scheduled for outside these dates.
For part-time programmes, the teaching weeks may deviate from this schedule.
