Academic Calendar

In the Academic Year Calendar you can see an overview of the structure of the academic year in relation to public holidays, school terms and so on.

Each week in an academic period is numbered, commencing with the first week of teaching, continuing through subsequent weeks including study breaks, and ending with the last week of the assessment period. Monday is considered the beginning of a new week.

Weeks are shown for all of the standard teaching periods except:

  • the Full Year (Y) teaching period, which is standard Semester 1 followed by standard Semester 2, and
  • the Straddle (H) teaching period, which is standard Semester 2 followed by standard Semester 1.

This information can be seen in an alternative format in the Handbook.
