How long will my exchange semester at FHV last?

The academic year at FHV - Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences is divided into two semesters:

  • Winter (= autumn/fall) semester
  • Summer (= spring) semester

Please note that the semesters of the Bachelor's programmes, which are offered entirely in English, sometimes have different semester terms than regular semesters offered in German.

The semester times of the Master's programmes are also different.

These different semester times are important for the organization of your exchange semester.

Examination periods are included in the given semester times.  Some of them take place at the end of the respective semester during an exam week or during the semester. These can take place in oral and/or written form, as well as in the form of project work.

The actual semester duration also depends on the selected courses.
