DEADLINE

Academic Year

The Academic year consists of two Assessment Periods consisting of a 15-week semester followed by a six- week study term. A five week vacation break separates each Assessment Period.

The spring semester begins in March with examinations ending in mid-June.

The fall semester begins in September and examinations end in mid-December.

The summer and winter terms start immediately following the previous semester and continue as two sessions of three weeks each for a total of six weeks.

It is mandatory that all students study during both the semesters and summer/winter terms.

Application Deadlines

Students may start their academic programs in either the fall or spring semester. Admissions are made on a rolling basis, however, students are urged to apply as early as possible to ensure sufficient time for application review and visa application procedures. Applications with all supporting documents must be submitted by January 2 for spring semester and July 1 for fall semester. Students who are admitted but who are not able to complete visa arrangements prior to the start of the semester, may defer enrollment to the subsequent semester.
