Academic Calendar & Term dates

The Academic Calendar provides important dates for your diary, including the start of term, Welcome Week or Welcome back, University examinations, formal publication of results dates and dates of graduation. Please note that some courses operate a non-standard Calendar and you can check with your School or CAS Hub if this affects your course.

Term Dates for 2019 - 20

We listened to Student feedback and the good news for next year is that we shall be providing longer teaching semesters to better support you in your studies and to help you plan further in advance.  The Calendar now includes a Reflection Week, which is a time when you can approach your academic tutors to discuss your learning but that no formal teaching will be scheduled.

Key Dates for 2019/20

These Calendars may be subject to changes but they will be confirmed at least 12 months in advance.
