You won't find out exactly the timing of your exams, as that won't be determined till much later in the term (if you have exams in January) or later in the academic year (if you don't have exams till the summer). That said, you should be able to know the dates of the exam season(s) for the year (i.e. the range of dates in which the exams are held), as those will almost certainly have been decided a year or more ago.

Similarly, term/semester dates will have been decided at least a year ago, and are very likely to be on your university's web site.

If you want to go home before the end of term, you should check what your university's policies are. You might be expected to ask permission to leave early, and your department will certainly frown on you leaving early and missing lecturers etc in doing so. (In practice they may not actually notice you've left, but it's still not a good idea.)

It really depends on your university, I believe. My uni timetable will have so many drafts that I don't trust it's accurate for the following week, let alone 9 months later. Regardless of whether we have a timetable, my uni also don't tell us when we break for summer until about March time. I know this doesn't answer your question per se, but it's my experience.

Bear in mind that your university might expect you to be available until the end of the summer term, even if your timetabled academic commitments finish sooner than that. That's why I suggested that you might want to check your university's policies.

Also, it's not a given that your university's summer term ends in July. My local university's summer term ends on Friday 12th June.

You asked when you break up for summer- which is stated on the term dates for each University. Now you're asking when your course will finish- which should also be determined by the term dates.
If your course starts before or ends after the set term dates- only your course representatives can help you, in which case you're wasting your time posting here.

It wil most likely say when the end of teaching is, probably not exam dates this early. The dates of the exam window will be available now on your unis website, normally easily accessible via google.

Maybe your uni will have finished for the academic year by then, that is a little longer than most unis (mid-June is more typical). That said the dates for your uni will have been available online for years, if it is the case, then you will have no choice but to deal with it.

MAB = meeting of assessment board


by the looks of it you have exams/work based learning ( possible placement dependant on your course)
https://www1.chester.ac.uk/undergrad...ing-wbl-module until the second week in June. Then the assessment boards meet. I have no idea if you need to be around after that.

The best thing to do is talk to your personal tutor, explaining your desire to do Camp America and ask when you have to remain in University for

Assuming you're in 1st or 3rd year, from the website, you won't have any exams after the 5th of June, so that's when you'll finish. But if you're uncertain just email a member of staff. I don't know about your university, but my university (Liverpool) term dates ends in July due to graduation ceremonies.

Since I don't work at your university I am unlikely to know and neither is anyone else on this forum.

It could be for postgraduate students, it could be to do with accommodation contracts, it cold be to do with when graduation is. As i said before the most obvious thing to do is to discuss it with your personal tutor/ course organiser who will be able to tell you when you are expected to be in university

Depends on the University I guess?
Mine is a little sloppy for the first two weeks due to module introductions + dissertation lectures. And then I have a few days on and off throughout the semester also due to dissertation checkups.
