the academic year ends on 7/8th june (depending on the year) july and august are not listed as thats the summer holidays
So the dates are as followed:

Monday 26 September - Friday 16 December = At University
Monday 19 December - Friday 6 January = Christmas Break
Monday 9 January - Friday 30 March = At University
Monday 2 April - Friday 29 April = Easter Break
Monday 1 May - Friday 8 June = At University
Monday 11 June - Monday 24 September = Summer Break

Roughly that?
4. yeaa
5. Monday 26 September - Friday 16 December = At University
Monday 19 December - Friday 6 January = Christmas Break
Monday 9 January - Friday 30 March = At University
Monday 2 April - Friday 29 April = Easter Break
Monday 1 May - Friday 8 June = At University
Monday 11 June - Monday 24 September = Summer Break
Yes, this is correct. Exam periods will be intergrated in to this timetable. At my University, for instance, there is a two week assessment period at the end of the first semester and a four week assessment period at the end of the second semester. It is likely that you will have some essays or other assignments to hand in during this time as well. July and August are not included because this forms part of the summer vacation.
