Semester and Lecture Periods

The academic year at the University of Regensburg consists of two semesters, the winter semester and the summer semester.
The winter semester begins on October 1 and ends on March 31.
The summer semester lasts from April 1 to September 30.

In each semester there is a lecture period and a period that ist free of lectures. During the lecture period, classes are held. The beginning and end of this period vary from year to year. The lecture-free period is usually used for internships, for self-study, for writing seminar papers, for exam preparation, and in some cases for the exams. Block seminars are also frequently offered during the lecture-free period.
