2022/23 Academic Year - move to a semester system
As of academic year 2022/23, The Courtauld is delivering teaching across two 12-week semesters, with two assessment periods (plus resits, where needed). Both semesters have a Reading Week mid-way through.
Previously, teaching at The Courtauld was delivered across two 10-week terms (Autumn and Spring), with the 10-week Summer term largely devoted to assessment. Increasingly, we were out of step with other universities, many of which had already moved to a system of two longer semesters, and more, shorter assessment periods.
The semester system has the advantage of focusing teaching time, spreading out assessments, and allowing students to have a longer break in the summer, for study, travel and work. The amount of teaching and support that students receive has not changed, nor has programme content.
