Lectures normally begin in October and end in June. Lectures are held for two semesters, and each semester includes a teaching and an evaluation period.
The semesters are organized as follows:
1st Semester (September/October – January)
2nd Semester (February/March – June)
Examinations are scheduled, depending on the Faculty, in the month following the end of the semester and/or in the period when lectures are suspended (usually mid-semester). Lectures are also suspended for two weeks over the Christmas period and for one week at Easter.
The academic calendar (containing all national holidays as well as closures) is posted every year on the university website.
