School of Public Health and Community Medicine

Key Dates

The UNSW academic year is divided into three semesters - Summer Term (8 teaching weeks), Semester 1 (12 within 13 teaching weeks + 1 week residential week + 3 weeks examination period) and Semester 2 - T2 (12 within 13 teaching weeks + 1 week residential week + 3 weeks examination period). Each Semester is divided into two teaching periods although most postgraduate courses offered by the School run for the whole semester. There are short mid-semester breaks of approximately one week between each teaching period and a slightly longer break in the middle of the Summer Term over the Christmas and New Year period. There is a mid-year break of approximately 4 weeks in June/July.
