university term dates- reading weeks??


Was wondering if anyone could help me with this: i was looking at the term dates for uni this year, and it seems like nottingham starts the spring term in January about a week before other unis.

Is there a reason for this, like a reading week or sumthing, or is it just always earlier?

Thank you

You have one week of lectures before your study period for exams begins for most subjects. Other than that I just dont know.

Some unis have a 3 week Easter holiday instead of xmas, we do it the other way around. That might be why. xx

When do the xmas holidays start and end?
normally like 16th dec (approx) to like early january, in 1st year we went back on 3rd Jan!! I think its actually 3 weeks isnt it though ... so maybe more like 10th.

The first reading week I remember reading being early / mid November, but don't take my word as definitive on that. Hope this was helpful.
