Creating a full-time undergraduate course - Term dates

Freshers and exam weeks


Freshers weeks

We do not count Freshers weeks as weeks of teaching.

You should not include these in term dates unless your students are attending lectures, doing course work or taking exams.

If you want this week to be marked as the start of term for funding, then you must remove a week from your term length.


Exam weeks

You should include exam periods in your term dates, as they count within your overall teaching weeks. However, do not include periods where students are waiting for their results.
