Examination periods and timetables

Students must be available on all of the above dates. In particular note that lectures will start on Monday 26th September and end on 9th December; the last week of term, 12-16 December, is reserved for revision lectures only.

Note also that this year we will have a Reading Week in both Semesters. Other departments may use different lecture weeks within each term so check these if taking modules outside of the Physics Department. Coursework deadlines will not be extended or other special arrangements made simply because a student has made travel arrangements which are within these terms.
