Please note that in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Semester and Term dates for 2020/21 were changed by the University Senate on 17 June 2020 from those originally published. The effect of the changes is that the Semesters and Term dates for 2020/21 have been moved back one week, with the lengths of the Christmas and Easter vacations remaining unchanged.

Please note that it was announced in January 2021 that Semester 2/Summer Term would be extended from the original finish date of Wednesday 23 June 2021, to Friday 25 June 2021.
