What are the changes to the calendar in 2022?
In 2021, we have two calendars,
- the 3 Session Teaching Calendar (in which most students study); and
- the 6 Study Period Teaching Calendar
From 2022, we still have two calendars, however “Study Periods” are now called “Terms” and most students will be studying in the Term Teaching Calendar.
- the 3-Session Teaching Calendar; and
- the 6-Term Teaching Calendar (in which most students study)
In 2022, Study Periods are called Terms as follows:
|Study Periods 2021||Terms 2022||Sessions 2022||Teaching Period|
Start date 2022
|Study Period 1||Summer Term||10 January|
|Study Period 2||Term 1||Session 1||7 March|
|Study Period 3||Term 2||2 May|
|Study Period 4||Term 3||Session 2||4 July|
|Study Period 5||Term 4||29 August|
|Study Period 6||Term 5||Session 3||31 October|
In 2022, ‘Summer Term’ will start on 10 January, which is around a week later compared with the start date of Study Period 1 in 2021. Similarly, Term 1 and Session 1 for 2022 are also a week later than the equivalent teaching periods’ commencement in 2021.
Start dates for Sessions 1, 2 and 3 align with start dates for Term 1, 3 and 5 respectively.
