Term dates exceptions
Students on full-time Taught Masters programmes study for a full calendar year and students are expected to study beyond the end of the third term to prepare their dissertation in time for submission in September.
Students on full-time two year Taught Masters programmes should ask their Departments when they are expected to study outside the normal stated term dates.
Research students are required to be in continuous attendance, apart from periods of leave to be taken in line with UCL staff holiday entitlements.
For students who are Tier 4 visa holders, this means that you will continue to be restricted to term-time levels of permissible hours of work, paid or unpaid.
