University Term Dates
The German academic year is generally divided into a winter and a summer semester. A semester is a period of six months. However, this includes semester breaks (“Semesterferien”), so the actual term time during which lectures and seminars are held (“Vorlesungszeit”) is shorter. During semester breaks there may be examinations, intensive courses or internships. You can usually also find time to go on holiday or find a student job, though.
The Bavarian universities adhere to their own academic calendars. Please check the websites of the individual universities for further information.
