Course Diary

Most lecture courses take place in Michaelmas Term and written examinations take place in early Lent Term, but other course work is carried out throughout the year.

Although most lecture courses take place during the University term dates (see table below), written assignment and project-related work is carried out outside these dates. Students are required to be resident in Cambridge (unless working on a designated project placement) for the duration of the course, and are expected to participate in all mandatory course activities outside the periods of Cambridge Terms.
