Academic year

Stenden University of Applied Sciences’ academic calendar might be different from what you are used to. Although the setup differs between study programmes, they all follow a similar structure.

Every bachelor course lasts between three and four years, each consisting of four modules. These modules last ten weeks and are completed with a so-called ‘test week’. In addition, every course has a practical aspect to it. This consists of one or more internships, projects involving real clients, and work experience in one of our Learning Companies. 

What does my schedule look like?

The following video explains the way the courses are set up at Stenden.

Academic Calendar

You can find information regarding dates in the Academic Calendar. Here you will find information on when modules start and end, test week dates, and more. This calendar is updated every year and offers you an insight into the way your programme is set up.

The ‘study weeks’ are different from regular weeks in the way that there are no classes or lectures. Students often use these weeks to complete their assignments.

The study year is divided as follows:

Module 1September to November
Module 2November to January
Module 3February to April
Module 4April to June
Module 5July and August (Summer vacation)
