Academic Calendar

The academic year begins in September and is over towards the end of June. As a general rule, it comprises 40 weeks of lectures, seminars and practical work and is mainly divided into 2 semesters.


Examination sessions take place at the end of each semester (first session starts in January and second – in June).


Students are examined separately in each subject and the total number of examinations in a semester is usually between four and six, but it depends on a study programme. Students who fail in an examination, can generally try to pass it again during the session or afterwards.
