  • The University’s academic calendar is split in to three terms - Autumn, Spring and Summer - not two semesters. Click here for the University's term dates
  • Teaching takes place in the Autumn and Spring Terms: some courses are taught for one term, others are taught over the two terms.
  • All examinations will take place in the Summer Term, when no teaching will take place.
