2020 Academic Calendar

In response to the COVID-19 national lockdown, which has now ended, we've made changes to the 2020 trimester dates.

  • Trimester 1 will now end on Friday, 3 July 2020 (this generally applies to courses that started on 17 February and were expected to finish on 19 June).
  • Trimester 2 will now start on Monday, 20 July, and will end Friday, 20 November 2020.
  • This means that most of our full-year students will now have a two-week mid-semester break from 6 July to 17 July. 

These changes will not affect online courses or courses that do not follow our standard trimester dates, such as the Bachelor of Nursing, short courses, managed apprenticeships, courses that include ITO delivery, and partnership courses. If you’re enrolled in one of these courses, please continue as normal unless otherwise advised by your tutor.
