*Please note that the teaching dates are approximate and will vary in a small percentage of courses.
^Note there is an earlier exam/assessment period for Business School courses.

Most programs run all courses during the major study periods - Study Period 2 and Study Period 5 (these are sometimes referred to as Semesters).

Some programs are offered on a four study period cycle, using Study Periods 1,3,4,6 (these are sometimes referred to as terms). These are often used to run additional offerings of courses to provide some flexibility in developing your study plan.

Please check your program schedule and timetable to find out when your course are being offered.
