2nd semester: Monday, February 5, 2019 - Friday, July 13, 2019

Note: in the Faculty of Science, Mathematics and Computer Science, the 2nd semester starts a week earlier, on January 28, 2019.

Students need to bear in mind that the examination periods can differ from one faculty to another. The exams of the 1st semester are often given just before and immediately after the winter break. Some faculties do not organise exams for the 2nd semester until mid July. Again, students should check with the faculty or departmental coordinator to confirm the relevant dates.
