Various novel features of the magnetic field splitting associated with the photoluminescence excitation spectra (PLE) and the photoluminescence spectra (PL) for CdTe/Cd1 - xMnxTe quantum well structures are described. The unusual Zeeman splitting pattern of the heavy-hole barrier exciton state, together with that of the light-hole well exciton state, is shown to be consistent with the magnetic response of the monolayers adjacent to an interface being different from that of the bulk. In particular it is shown that for the carrier in the conduction band, the magnitude of the exchange integral with the magnetic ions in the first two monolayers is of approximately the same magnitude but of opposite sign to that occurring in the bulk.
