Term Dates

University Full Term

Each teaching term (also known as Full Term) is eight weeks long (with periods of time either side for private study in Cambridge, if a student so wishes). There are three terms per year: Michaelmas (running from October to December), Lent (January to March) and Easter (April to June). Most degrees are taught over nine or twelve terms-that is, three or four years.
