Exam term

The term after Easter consists largely of examinations. However, the first week is used to provide revision lectures.

  • Revision classes: w/c 22 April 2019
  • Examination period 2 starts: Monday 29 April 2019
  • Term ends: Friday 31 May 2019
  • Examination period 3:  5 - 16 August 2019

You are expected to be available on all of the above dates. Coursework deadlines will not be extended and neither will other special arrangements be made simply because you have made travel arrangements which are within these semesters. 

*Please note: reading week is not a vacation period and the free time you gain should be used wisely: it allows you to catch up on your work, read about your subjects, go back over topics you have found difficult and prepare for the rest of the semester. 

During the summer, MSc students are expected to work full-time on their Projects and maintain regular contact with the project supervisors.
