The Term Dates provide a list of important dates for each academic year. This includes the start and end date, term breaks and public holidays.
Some courses run outwith the designated term dates. It is the responsibility of students to check the dates of their programme.
NEW for 2022/23
We are reviewing our academic calendar and there may be further changes to the term dates published here. It is likely that changes to the term dates for 2023/24 will be finalised by December 2022. Please check back regularly.
For most programmes, in Term 2 (January 2023) teaching will begin on 30th January 2023. The period between 9th and 30th January 2023 will be used for:- orientation for new entrants; reflection and consolidation on previous learning; and, academic, professional and personal development activities.
Some programmes will use this time for teaching. This will be communicated by your programme team.
We hope that most will welcome this additional reflection time between Terms 1 and 2. We have consequently reduced the Student Spring break from two weeks to one week. The Spring break in 2023 will be Monday 3rd to Monday 10th April, with most classes recommencing on Tuesday 11th April, until term concludes on 5th May 2023.
In order to mitigate the potential impact of the reduction in the Spring break, particularly for those with caring or childcare responsibilities, we are exploring what additional support and guidance might be necessary to manage this change.
