Schedule of Studies

In many respects, starting university marks a new chapter in your life, and it naturally entails many changes. To help students get off to a better start, many universities offer orientation events, campus tours and introductions to the university libraries and academic work during the first week of their studies.

Generally, new students are also accompanied by tutors, who are usually students in higher semesters. This gives first semester students an initial overview of their studies, shows them where to find the lecture halls and introduces them to the people they can contact if they have any questions.

At state universities in Germany, an academic year is divided into two semesters, a summer and a winter semester. A semester consists of the lecture period and the lecture-free period, the so-called semester break. However, the break is not necessarily "free", but is often used for work placements or for writing papers and assignments.

The standard period of study for a Bachelor's degree is usually six to seven semesters. In the early semesters, students are taught the basics relevant to their subject, which are then expanded upon in the qualification phase by means of more specialized options.

An optional Master's program, which builds on a Bachelor's degree, lasts another three to four semesters. Depending on how quickly the student completes all the relevant courses and examinations, a Bachelor's degree can be obtained after about three years, and a Master's degree after about five to six years.

Opportunities after your Bachelor's degree

During your studies, there is also the possibility to study abroad for one or more semesters at one of our partner universities. Credits earned there can be transferred. At a university of applied sciences, practical semesters are often also an integral part of the degree program.

The course concludes with a Bachelor's or Master's thesis, which is written on a specific topic to a defined extent and is finally presented in a colloquium.There are also degree courses which do not require a colloquium - this is not a must, but usual. After the successful submission of the thesis and, if applicable, the colloquium, you will receive your Bachelor's or Master's certificate and transcript. This may also take place in the form of a graduation ceremony.
