Academic calendar

The academic year is divided into two semesters:

  • Winter term: October – mid-February.
  • Summer term: mid-February – mid-June.

The system requires 15 weeks of classes followed by two or four-week examination sessions. Unsuccessful students may retake an examination in February (for the first semester) and in September (for the second semester).
