Academic Calendar

The academic year consists of two semesters and runs from mid-August 2017  to early June 2018. There are approximately three weeks of holiday between semesters.

Please note: the UAE and Dubai authorities will confirm exactly which dates will be granted for general Public Holidays, often shortly before the event. Public Holidays are granted to students after being officially confirmed by the university.

During Phase 3 of the MBBS Program, students may elect, or be required, to undertake a period of selective study during the summer months. Students will be notified of this requirement in advance.

Information is set out in detail in the university catalogue, and updated information on teaching, scheduling, examination timetables and university closure periods will be published throughout the year on the university website.
