General Information

The academic year at the University of Kaiserslautern is divided into two semesters:

  • Winter Semester (1st October to 31st March)
  • Summer Semester (1st April to 31st September)

During the winter semester, the majority of the lectures are given from mid-October to mid-February, during the summer semester likewise from mid-April to mid-July. Exams are scheduled in the semester break. The programmes start at the beginning of the winter semester and the summer semester.

Knowledge of the German language is not necessarily required to take part in the master or PhD programme, but  international students have to pass a German language test after the first academic year. German language courses are offered annually, starting in August. Students who cannot attend these courses must already take part in German language courses in their home country.
