Academic calendar

The academic year at KTH consists of one autumn and one spring term. Specific dates for the academic years 2013/2014 and 2014/15 can be found below.

The academic year is divided into two terms. The autumn term starts in late August/early September and runs until the middle of January. Spring term begins in the middle of January and runs until the beginning of June.

Each term consists of two study periods, each comprising three or four parallell courses during seven weeks of scheduled lectures, laboratory work, group work and smaller tutorial sessions. These are followed by one week of preparation/own work, free from scheduled tuition, before the exams take place in October, January, March and June. Re-examination takes place in January, April and June.
