Studying History at Bonn

Lectures and courses


Courses are announced in the "Kommentierte Vorlesungsverzeichnis" (basis). There, you will find brief descriptions of the courses and information concerning registration, requirements for participation etc. Courses are usually held in German; a certain knowledge of the German language is therefore necessary. You will find information on German courses offered at Bonn here. Furthermore, knowledge of additional languages may be a requirement for some courses. For lectures you usually do not have to register in advance.
Duration of the Semester 

The winter semester starts on October 1, the summer semester on April 1. Lectures and courses will start approximately 1-2 weeks later and end in February and July respectively. You will find the exact dates for lectures and for the semester breaks here. During the semester break no lectures and courses take place. However, there may be exams during the break. Please contact your professor or tutor for further information on that.
