University of Greenwich Academic Calendar<br />Statement of Principles<br />The calendar should first and foremost be driven by an academic rationale; it should reflect the needs of all students; be consistent and transparent; and comply with frameworks imposed by Government regulatory bodies<br />Requirements<br />The calendar should deliver: <br />Parity of student opportunity, access & experience irrespective of mode of study, programme start/finish date or student status;<br />Scope for differentiation based on need at different levels, between P/G and U/G and also at Levels 4, 5 and 6; <br />Teaching blocs of equal length;<br />Scheduled study/revision periods; <br />Defined points for assessment by examination for P/G and U/G study;<br />Opportunities for reassessment in an academic session; <br />Formalised progression points (PABs) that correspond with year round programme start and finish dates;<br />Formalised Summer teaching & learning activity;<br />Minimal disruption due to timing of Easter;<br />In identifying these requirements the following checks are noted:<br />Recognition that a more flexible academic calendar is not synonymous with growth and proliferation to the programme/course offer;<br />Acceptance of certain limits imposed by market forces and the requirement for intelligent resource deployment;<br />
