Oxford’s year is divided into three terms: Michaelmas (Autumn), Hilary (Spring) and Trinity (Summer), these run September to December, January to March and April to June, respectively.
Each year, the College updates their term dates which may shift slightly in the calendar year.
International students are advised to consult with the current year’s term dates and if in doubt speak with the College Administration should they require guidance on when the travel can be booked at the end of each term or academic year.
The College remains open during half-term breaks, as well as term breaks over Easter and Summer period, running short-term revision and pre-sessional courses for both external and full-time Cherwell students.
