For all students except PhD students, who can begin their programmes at any point during the year, and Erasmus students who can begin their programmes in either September or January/February, the academic year starts in mid-September and finishes and the end of June (thus a student can only start in September).
Classes are spread over two terms:
- The first term starts in mid-September and finishes at the end of December, and is followed by an examination session spanning the first three weeks of January.
- The second term starts at the end of January and ends in mid-May. This is followed by an examination session throughout June.
A third session is held in the second half of August and the first week of September so that students can resit exams they did not pass the first time.
