Study with us
For general information about coming to Darmstadt as an "incoming" exchange student, please see the web pages of our International Office.
You can find there, for example:
- a long list of good reasons to study at the h_da;
- how to apply to study at the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences;
- financial information (for example, study here is tuition free, but there is a social fee);
- what you need to do before you leave home
- and much more.
The Computer Science Department (in German, the "Fachbereich Informatik", or the "FB.I" for short) offers a wide range of courses in English (and a wider range still in German) every semester, at both an undergraduate (Bachelor´s) and a graduate (Master´s) level. See our Course Handbook for a list of approved courses, but please note that not all of theses courses are offered in any given semester.
We have two semesters per year:
- Winter Semester from the beginning of October through mid-February the following year;
- Summer Semester from the beginning of April through mid-July.
See the official university calendar for the current exact dates.
