Semesters and collective days off


The UvA academic year is divided into two semesters. The 2014-2015 academic year is scheduled as follows:

  • First semester:
    1 September (week 36) 2014 – 30 January 2015 (week 5)
  • Second semester:
    2 February 2015 (week 6) – 26 June 2015 (week 26)

Collective days off

In 2013, the day before Queen's Day (Monday, 29 April) and the day after Ascension Day (Friday, 10 May) are collective days off and the University will be closed.

King's Day (formerly known as Queen's Day) on 27 April will be celebrated in 2014 on Saturday, 26 April. As this holiday falls in the weekend, it has not been reserved as a collective day off for that year.
