The academic year at LTH is divided into two semesters of approximately 20 weeks each. Each semester is divided into two study periods. Sometimes a course may run over two study periods and be followed by an examination at the end of the course. The autumn semester starts in the beginning of September and ends around the second week in January (periods 1 and 2). The spring semester starts around the second week of January and ends during the first week of June (periods 3 and 4).
Please note that in case you follow courses at another faculty (for example Swedish courses), those may not follow the LTH academic year.
