Where can I find the key dates for uni? (2013 Academic Calendar)

Courtesy of http://www.cheezburger.com/

Gooooood afternoon!

Have you noticed my new widgets on the right side of the screen!? One of them is the ‘Upcoming Events’ – and I’ve had some positive feedback about it (thanks!). But did you know that you can access a full academic calendar online? In fact – you can access the 2013, 2014 AND 2015 calendars!!

Back in the old days! R.I.P student diary

In the past, the university would publish student diaries for everyone! But due to a number of reasons, they have discontinued it. (If you are curious as to why they discontinued it, click this to have a read all about it).

But, grab a pen and your diary out – and write these dates in! I’ve pulled this table straight out from the university website, but I’d recommend that you visit the website (click me!) just in case anything changes in the future.

Warning! Just be careful if you are planning to go on a holiday and such. Some of the dates can be deceiving. For example – the calendar says that the end of semester one is sunday 2 June, but wait! This doesn’t include exams! Exams for semester one are between 11 June – 28 June. So…be careful!
