Kenyon-Exeter students will be required to arrive in Exeter a few days before the beginning of the Autumn Term for orientation (or “Welcome Week”). The University will notify accepted students of the exact dates for this orientation during the preceding summer, but typically it commences one week before the beginning of term.
Autumn Term: Monday 19 September 2016 - Friday 9 December 2016
Spring Term: Monday 9 January 2017 - Friday 31 March 2017
Summer Term: Monday 1May 2017 - Friday 16 June 2017
The University of Exeter website notes that “The dates given above are for standard University terms: however, for some programmes the dates of required attendance may vary.” One peculiarity of Exeter’s term system is that the final assessment for each term takes place during the first week of the subsequent term; for example, final essays for Autumn Term may be due at the end of the first week of the Spring Term; examinations for some Spring Term modules may take place during the Summer Term. Thus, while Kenyon-Exeter students attend classes only in Autumn and Spring terms, they may need to extend their residency briefly into the summer term in order to submit their final coursework, and finish co-curricular travel.
