You can find future years' term dates on the University's main term dates page, or visit the Examinations Office for further information on examination timetables and dates. Dates provided are correct at the time of publication, but may be subject to change.

Will I have a reading week?

The provision of reading or study weeks (known as Assessment & Support Weeks) varies across the University. You will need to check with your School or Department to find out if you will have one, and if so, when this will be. You may find the information in your programme handbook or your programme's Canvas module.

Degree Congregations

The summer congregations (graduations) are typically held in the first two weeks of July; specific times and dates for each School and Department will be confirmed at the beginning of April following approval by the Senate of the University. Please note that the allocation of Schools does not follow a pattern, therefore we would strongly advise graduands and guests to only make travel or accommodation plans once their attendance is confirmed and this information is available, which is usually in April.

Visit the Graduation pages for more information on degree congregations.
