Semester Dates

Semester dates are approved three years in advance by Academic Council but may be subject to change for operational reasons.

New students are expected to be available for Welcome Week each year. All students are expected to be available for all teaching during the academic year and the full examination period and should note the dates of supplementary examinations each summer.

Please note that, due to the nature of the course, some courses have additional teaching/placements/ professional practice requirements which fall outside of the normal semester dates. Students are advised to check with their School to confirm any additional attendance requirements outside of these dates.
