Additional Information

  • The Academic Calendar comprises two versions –  one for Undergraduate students and one for Postgraduate students;
  • The Postgraduate calendar applies to many, but not all taught postgraduate programmes.  Please consult your Student Handbooks for the detailed schedule;
  • Graduate+ weeks (employability activity) will comprise a range of employability and professional development activities across campuses;
  • Most courses have an ‘inter-semester’ week (wc: 29 January) – Examples of what this might comprise includes: professional development and employability activity, trips and/or work based visits, Moodle on-line activity, independent learning and/or group projects and presentations;
  • Assessment is NOT limited solely to the weeks indicated, but these weeks have been identified as they may typically be utilised for exams, assignment hand in dates and other assessment.

Please note a minority of courses follow slightly different academic calendar weeks, for example those that are heavily placement based on those starting in months other than September. If your course is different, this will be made clear in your student handbook.
