Trimester System at the Universität der Bundeswehr München (Germany)

Universität der Bundeswehr München (University of the German Armed Forces in Munich), a public institution established in 1973, operates on a trimester calendar system of three trimesters per one year of full time study (60 ECTS per one year of full time study). Qualified students are allowed to enter the so called "intensive" accelerated study mode leading to a degree program completed in less time than regular students. The intensive study mode allows for a maximum of 75 ECTS per one year of full time study.

In the fall trimester of 2007 the Bologna-based Bachelor and Master degree structure was introduced to gradually replace the traditional Diploma program structure. Regular Bachelor and Master degree study sequence requires five years of full-time study. Qualified students enrolled in the accelerated programs complete the same in four years only.

The university consists of two study divisions which regulate their degree program structures: university division and Fachhochschule (university of applied sciences) division. Admission to bachelor degree programs is based on the Zeugnis der allgemeinen Hochschulreife (Certificate of General University Maturity) for the university division programs, and on the Zeugnis der Fachhochschulreife (Certificate of University of Applied Sciences Maturity) for the Fachhochschule division programs.
