In Germany, the academic year is split into two semesters, winter and summer.

  • Winter semester goes from October to March
  • Summer semester goes from March to September


Because the winter semester does not match perfectly with the academic calendar in some countries, many exchange students choose to come to Aschaffenburg UAS for the summer semester or full academic year.
