Academic Calendar

Each academic year is divided into four Quads of 8 weeks each. Furthermore we have both a Winter Term and a Summer Term of 4 weeks each.

You will have a one-week Autumn Break between Quad 1 and Quad 2, a two-week break between Quad 2 and the Winter Term, a one-week Spring Break between Quad 3 and Quad 4 and a long break between the Summer Term and Quad 1.
