Dates of term

There are two calendars in operation at the University:

  • Calendar A is for most full-time undergraduate students at our High Wycombe Campus.
  • Calendar B is for students at Bucks’ Uxbridge Campus, and for some students taking Faculty of Society & Health courses and studying at the High Wycombe Campus.

Students on pre-registration nursing programmes should also refer to the Placements Planner on Blackboard for details of holidays.

Please check with your faculty or department head, or your course or programme leader, which calendar applies to you – especially if you’re a part-time or non-undergraduate student, as your term dates may differ from those given below.
