Semester date exceptions
Students on a full-time one-year taught Masters programme are required to study for one calendar year and therefore do not have a summer vacation. Programmes typically finish on the second Friday in September.

Research students, on a full-time PhD programme, are required to be in continuous attendance.
Any holiday should be agreed and taken in accordance with University regulations.
