Our term dates vary based on the type of course. Students who are registered on a course with a non-standard or extended academic year, either at undergraduate or postgraduate level, will be advised of the dates for their course separately.
If you have any questions about your course start date, please contact your tutor or the Programme Administration (PAd) for your campus.
