Semester Dates

In general the Winter Semester begins on 01.10. until 31.03.,  the Sommer Semester from 01.04. until 30.09. However, lectures are only held from mid-October to mid-February and from mid-April to mid-July. In between lie the so-called lecture-free periods. However, these are not necessarily equivalent to holidays, because examinations or second examination dates can still take place here, not to mention the time needed to prepare for these examinations. Besides, it's important to keep the Pflichtpraktikum (compulsory internship) in this time period, because it is not possible to do it during the Semester. During this time you can also do block courses in the ABV area! But register early enough, i.e. at the beginning of the semester!


The important dates at the beginning of the Semester are:
