Buckinghamshire New University Holidays
University Terms and Academic Calendar
There are two calendars in operation at the University.
Calendar A applies to most full-time undergraduate students who study at the High Wycombe Campus.
Calendar B applies to students who study at the Uxbridge Campus. It also applies to some students enrolled on courses in the Faculty of Society & Health who study at the High Wycombe Campus. Students on pre-registration nursing programmes should also refer to the Placements Planner on their Blackboard Organisation for details of holiday periods.
Please check with your Faculty, Course / Programme Leader or your Academic Department if you are not sure which calendar applies to you. In particular, if you study part-time or are not an undergraduate student you should also check as above, as your term dates may differ from those given below.
