The Academic Calendar

A group of students studying

Anglia Ruskin University's Academic Calendar contains information on all the key dates you need for the academic year, including teaching weeks, examination periods and vacations for all taught provision.

Please note: the calendar information provided on this page is for delivery of courses at Anglia Ruskin's main campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Peterborough (Guild House), London, our Associate Colleges throughout the UK (except Arden University). Teaching dates and examination periods for our overseas Associate Colleges broadly match those used in the UK but small local variations have been agreed on occasion to accommodate, for example, different public holidays in different jurisdictions. Exact details are provided to students in their Student Handbooks.

The Calendar published on this page is for academic year 2020/21. Provisional dates are also provided below for the 2021/22 academic year.

Links to the Assessment Process

The Academic Calendars map directly to the assessment process. An Assessment Calendar, which details the dates of individual Modular Assessment Panel (MAP), Anglia Ruskin Exceptional Circumstances (formerly Mitigation) Panel and Anglia Ruskin Awards Board meetings, is published by the Academic Registry and can be viewed on the Assessment Service's webpages.

In addition, final dates that can be set for the submission of student work are also provided and should be used when Module Leaders are developing their module guides and which correspond directly to the academic calendar and assessment processes.
This page does not provide dates of individual examinations - these are available from the Academic Registry Examinations section.


Please direct any queries or questions about the Academic Calendar to Paul Baxter, Academic Registrar.
