Creating a full-time undergraduate course - Term dates
Semesters or terms?
Many universities and colleges operate on 2 semesters, rather than 3 separate terms.
We pay students at 3 points throughout their academic year, so we still need to maintain the 3 terms in our systems.
If you use semesters, you should create term dates that reflect your students’ study pattern as closely as possible. You could use any holiday periods in the second semester as a natural break for your terms.
