I've read that some unis give you 4-5 months off, is that true?

For most about a month at Christmas, a month at Easter and about 4 for the summer. Also you may get a couple of reading weeks.

In short loads.

I also get a fortnight off at Christmas and Easter.

My last exam is on 12th June and I start uni again on 29th September, so I get a good 3 and a half months off!

Will be working in a pharmacy for a good 3 months of it though.

Some people, however, finished their exams in the end of May, so I guess they get about 4 months off.

Edit: For my cohort of pharmacy students, we got 3 weeks off in December and the same for Easter, but we did not get any reading weeks throughout the year. So I guess you could say we get about 5 months off in total throughout the year. On the other hand, we had exams like 2 or 3 days in to the terms for both Christmas and Easter holidays, so I guess they weren't really holidays per se - a lot of it was spent revising. For other courses, however, they would have enjoyed the vast majority of their holidays.

Well in Christmas and particularly Easter study lots. Summer is mostly spent saying how you should really finish your filing and prep for next year while bumming around having barbecues and drinking Pimms.

I finish on the 6th June and come back in late September, so just short of four months holiday. Got two weeks at Easter and at Christmas. I do feel a bit sorry for people who are paying £9,000 a year and get like 4-5 months off at Summer, as well as reading weeks and 3-4 weeks at Christmas/Easter.

5/6 weeks at Christmas, 5/6 at Easter, 13 weeks for summer but 2/3 weeks of term after exams to do whatever I want. So 25-28 weeks, probably 26. That's about 6 months.

For Christmas I didn't do much. For Easter I met up with friends and played a few sports. For summer I'm going to Prague with my flat, Maldives with my family, maybe somewhere like Ayia Napa with some mates from home and maybe Rome and Berlin with another mate. Gotta love student overdrafts

What kind of courses do you people do to get 5/6 weeks off at easter and christmas and able to finish your exams in early may?

I start at the end of september and am in uni 5 days a week untill mid december, I get 2 weeks off to study then I do exams. Then it's straight through barring a 2 week holiday during easter (again which is used for exams studying) until june.

I need to have a word with my department here.
