Term dates

The Coventry University academic teaching year is composed of three 16 week-long teaching blocks, running from early October to mid January, mid January to early May and early May to late August. Typically the academic year starts in the September of a calendar year but it can also start at other times as well. Some course follow different academic years e.g. NHS courses. Please check with your school.

Teaching blocks are composed of teaching, study break and assessment / examination weeks; dates of these may vary according to which programme you are enrolled on. Some undergraduate and postgraduate courses operate a “semester style” of delivery composed of 11 teaching, 2 assessment and 3 study weeks per single teaching block. Other courses operate a “long-thin style” delivery, composed of e.g. 24 teaching, 2-4 assessment and 6 study weeks per double teaching block.

You will be advised of the dates during the admissions process or by your Faculty/School once you are here.
