The winter semester usually starts in October and ends in February, with lectures starting in mid-October. The summer semester typically runs from April to July, with lectures starting in mid-April. It's important to note that specific start and end dates can vary slightly between universities and programs, so it's best to check with your chosen institution for their academic calendar.

Tuition fees for undergraduate programs at public universities in Germany are generally free, although there may be small administration fees. However, tuition fees may apply for certain master's degree programs or for students from non-EU countries.

It's important to research the specific requirements and have all necessary documents and insurance in place before starting studies in Germany.
