Term dates

Plymouth University's academic year is structured around terms rather than semesters. Below are current standard* term dates.

Every effort has been made to ensure that the dates below are accurate. However, students should note that dates are subject to change. If you have to make up any placement hours which are missed during the academic year this will be done during holiday periods.
* Please note that some Faculty of Health, Education and Society courses are run with non-standard term dates. Please view our list of these courses and their term dates.
