An academic year at BTH
Most of BTHs programmes, given in English, start in the autumn semester. An academic year is divided into two semesters:
The autumn semester begins in August/September and lasts until a couple of weeks into January.
The spring semester begins in January and finishes in June.
One full academic year lasts 40 weeks, and each term lasts 20 weeks.
If your degree is not finished but you are in your final term you can still apply for most of our Master programmes. If this is the case, you provide BTH with a transcript of records of the terms you have finished and a registration certificate showing which courses you are studying during your final year/term.
