Timetable for the Academic year

Important dates during the academic year, teaching periods and exam week dates, for the ongoing and next academic year.

The Academic year begins always 1 August and ends 31 July. The terms are divided into two teaching periods each, periods 1 and 2 during the Autumn term and periods 3 and 4 during the Spring term. Each teaching period consists of seven weeks of teaching followed by one week for exams. Period 4 is one week longer than the other periods due to the Easter vacation. In addition to this, there are two Summer terms before and after the regular teaching periods: one in August and one in May-July.
