There are three trimesters per academic calendar year, each with a 12 week teaching period.

The previous Academic Calendar was based on two compulsory semesters of study per year, with the option of completing Summer Semester during the end of year break.

The two compulsory semesters included 13 weeks of teaching.


The new trimester model provides some students with the option to accelerate their study and complete their degree sooner.

Depending on the program, trimesters also offer some students greater flexibility to balance work, study and lifestyle commitments.

Some students may also have program structures which may allow for a lighter workload and enable them to spread their units of study across the 3 trimesters.
