During the periods when no classes take place – the so-called Semesterferien (March & April and August to October) – students are expected to write their term papers and theses and to prepare for examinations. Exams may also take place in the first two weeks after the last week of lectures.

During the Christmas and New Year holidays (December 24 – January 6) much of the University is closed and no classes take place.

The semester dates for the Faculty of Medicine are slightly different.
