Incomer Information

Darmstadt is a technical University and our Mathematics Department is certainly the best in the state.  It is also quite large with many courses being offered.

Particular strengths include:

  • a graduate school on fluid dynamics (many advanced courses in English)
  • optimization (large group, regular course offerings usually in German)
  • stochastics

There are also good groups in pure subjects such as

  • logic (courses in English)
  • algebra/number theory

There are further groups on numerics, geometry, etc.

While we offer some courses in English, most are taught in German, so knowledge of the language is recommended.

Students from abroad are welcome to study for a term or an academic year at the Department of Mathematics at TU Darmstadt. We always have a number of exchange students at our department.

General information about the University

On the University webpages you can access information on Visa, Housing, arrival, etc. To determine the dates when classes start and finish see dates of current and future terms under the entries Beginn der Lehrveranstaltungen and Ende der Lehrveranstaltungen.

Courses offered in Mathematics

Currently offered courses are listed on the campus wide system "TUCaN", as well as past courses. For future semesters, a preliminary planning exists, published on the department website, currently only available in German.

WS refers to winter term, SS to summer. Numbers such as 4+2 mean 4 class hours and 2 problem session hours per week (where an hour means 45 min). Multiply by 1.5 to obtain ECTS points (the example gives 1.5 * 6 = 9 ECTS points).  However, seminars, although marked with 2 have 6 ECTS points.

Exams and Credits

Larger classes have written exams while the smaller advanced classes usually have oral exams. To register for an exam, you need to use the TUCaN campus management system, and see the Studienbüro. The Studienbüro will also issue the Erasmus (or other) transcript.

If you have no xperience with oral exams, the best way to get acquainted with this kind of examination is to be present at an oral exam taken by another student; the necessary consent of examiner and student is normally given.  Another opportunity is a mock (test) exam, perhaps given by the assistant of the lecturer.  Please ask your lecturers early enough for their recommendations and suggestions; please discuss the issue with the Erasmus tutor as well.


Accommodation in Darmstadt and the surrounding area is difficult to obtain as the demand is higher than the supply. We list links that may help to find accommodation:

  • The Studentenwerk has a large number of student rooms, but only a small number of available rooms. You will have to put your name on a waiting list.
  • The Darmstädter Echo is the local newspaper and carries advertisements for all types of accommodation.
  • A great service with a lot of available rooms can be found at

If you need help in securing a room that you have found at any of these links, get in contact with us.
