University Calendar

For regular and extension students, the University follows a two-semester calendar of sixteen weeks of classes each. The school of Medicine may use a system of annual instead of semester course offerings. The summer education programs have a term system. The calendar for each year is prepared by the University Registrar and approved by the University Senate. Regular undergraduate programs are run usually from the second week of every September to the end of June, except for prospective graduates who stay a bit late in campus until they graduate.

Summer programs usually commence in mid-July and run through September.

Graduate education is offered from November to around mid-July; with first enrollments preceded by preparatory training of candidates in language and computational skills and research methodology – aimed at improving quality of graduate education.
