Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - International Office

Academic Calendar

The academic year at Humboldt-Universität is divided into two semesters. The lectures of winter term start in the middle of October and end at the end of February. The summer semester's lectures run between mid April to mid July.

After the end of the semesters written exams take place. The time periods for examinations vary. So please plan for at least three additional weeks at Humboldt-Universität if you would like to participate in the examinations. Before the official start of the semester, some interesting events are organized in which you may wish to take part. Around two weeks before the official beginning of the semester the enrollment at the Humboldt-Universität takes place (you will receive a letter of acceptance with a specific date). Therefore you should plan to arrive in Berlin at least two weeks before the semester starts.
