Academic calendar

The academic year is divided into two semesters, the autumn semester and the spring semester.  The academic year consists of four teaching periods and there is an examination week(s) at the end of each teaching period. Please take a look at the academic calendars of each univeristy unit at UCPori for exact dates.  

The orientation week (week 34, starting on Mon 21th) is compulsory for exchange students and therefore we strongly recommend arriving in Pori before that (on Sunday 20th of August at latest).
