Our academic year starts in the first days of September and ends mid-May. It is divided into two semesters, with a break for Christmas:
- Autumn semester, from early September to Christmas
- Spring semester, from early January to mid-May
Each semester comprises 11 weeks of classes, followed by 3 weeks dedicated to make-up classes and revisions. It ends with one week of exams.
At undergraduate levels, most lectures last one semester, and take place only during one semester per academic year. Seminars are shorter, usually 5-week long.
In 4th year (graduate level), students do an internship from March onwards, therefore 4th year classes end in February.
