All the dates and details of our semesters for the 2020-2021 academic year are listed below.

 

Future semester dates are under review, the start and end dates will be as published but the pattern of semesters, breaks and assessment periods are subject to change. 

2020-2021 Standard Undergraduate Academic Year

 

Standard Undergraduate Academic Year 2020/21

In response to the COVID-19 situation we will be re-organising the academic year for those on standard undergraduate courses. There will be no change to the start and end dates but we will introduce a two week assessment period in January at the end of the Autumn Semester in which students will be able to complete some items of coursework and projects and sit examinations. The summer assessment period will reduce to three weeks and also be a period in which students will be able to complete some coursework and projects and sit exams.

2020-2021 Postgraduate Taught Students

 

Are expected to be in attendance during the standard semester dates and during the dissertation element until the end of their course. They may also be required to undertake University assessments outside semester during the Christmas and Easter vacations.

2020-2021 Postgraduate Research Students

 

Are expected to be in attendance throughout the year, apart from up to eight weeks holiday (including public holidays and closure days at UEA or the Institute at which the student is based) each academic year (pro-rata for part years) as approved by their supervisor. For the avoidance of doubt, the academic year is assumed to run from 1 October to 30 September. Annual leave cannot be carried forward into the next leave year nor does it extend the period of study or registration.

Trainees registered on professional doctorate programmes, for example, ClinPsyD and EdPsyD, will find their leave entitlement detailed within the programme Handbooks
