Main intake every year commences in Jun-July,Dec-Jan.
Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics have two semesters – February to June and July to November – with holidays similar to secondary schools. Some half-year courses start in July.
Each university has its own timetable but generally the year is split into 2 semesters of about 12 weeks each, with a 2-week break during the semester and a 6-week break in the middle of the year. The breaks are not necessarily holidays – you may need the time for research and study.
Some universities offer ‘summer school’ courses from November to February, which reduces the number of years it takes to complete a degree.

    Hi, Merely returned here to advise you regarding Mobile Monopoly. This is a superb technique and WILL make you money, especially seeing as you own a web site. Take a quick look at the video, the strategy is about using Mobile Advertising which is brand new and an unexposed market where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I promise you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
