Our academic year is divided into the winter semester (WiSe), taking place from 1 October to 31 March of the following year, and the summer semester (SoSe), taking place from 1 April to 30 September. Study exchanges are based on these periods and usually last one or two semesters.
An overview of all courses can be found in the Course Catalogue of our Campus Management System TUCaN. Most courses are offered annually, so you can use the previous semester's course catalogue to plan future semesters. You can generally choose lectures, seminars, tutorials and excursions as courses. For assistance and further information, please contact your respective international officer. If you come to TU Darmstadt as part of the Erasmus+ programme, you also have the opportunity to write a BA/MA thesis (opens in new tab). More information
