- The semester’s duration is 15 weeks including the exams.
- The academic year falls in two main semesters known as level “level of study”. The study program consists of 10 semesters each one falls into 15 weeks including exams. Each semester is considered a separate level that ends with a final exam. The two semesters
are separated with a midyear vacation in January or as shown in the university council annual calendar.
- In limited cases, the faculty council can arrange an intensified summer semester (third) that is 6-8 weeks including exams, on the proposal of the relevant department council and the possibilities and resources of the faculty.
