Key dates

Students walking Untitled Page

The academic year is split in to the main arrivals weekend, Welcome Week, teaching weeks, exam periods and vacations.

Welcome Week starts on Monday 18 September and all students are expected to attend.

Our courses are taught on a semester or trimester basis so you’ll need to check which calendar your child will be following. If there are any variations to these dates, they'll be published in the course handbook.

We expect students to attend all their classes and will contact those who don’t attend regularly. We know students may have to work while at university, but they need to make sure working doesn’t adversely affect their studies. We also expect students not to book holidays during teaching and assessment periods.
