NTUCL operates on a semester system with the first term (Term 1 - fall semester) running from mid-September to mid-January. Typically, exchange students will be allowed to take their exams before December 25 if arranged well in advance with the NTUCL Associate Dean. The second term (Term 2 - spring Semester) runs from late February to late June. The calendar for the academic year is typically published each May or June. Students are asked to arrive no later than seven days before school starts.
The academic calendar is available online.
