University Academic Calendar for the 2022 2nd Semester

At its meeting held on 29 July 2022, the Executive Committee of Senate (ECS) approved the revised calendar for the second semester for 2022, with the exception for the calendar for the School of Medicine, which is being implemented by the School. The calendar can be summarized, at a very high level, as follows:

a. Unless otherwise already determined by the Schools and communicated to the students as in the case of the School of Medicine and School of Oral Health Sciences, the semester’s academic activities will resume on 15 August 2022 and end on 15 December 2022;
b. Study/revision week prior to the commencement of standard examinations is 31 October 2022 and end on 4 November 2022;
c. End-of year standard examinations shall commence on 7 November 2022 and end on 25 November 2022. However, the Occupational Therapy Department shall commence with their final year practical/clinical examinations, taking place in different clinical facilities on 24 October 2022 as already confirmed by the School.
d. Supplementary/deferred examinations shall commence on 5 December 2022 and end on 13 December 2022;
e. Oath taking activities will be held during 13-14 December 2022; and
f. The standard examinations and end-of block examination results, as the case may be, will be released on 15 December 2022, and the University will close on the day, 15 December 2022.

As this provides a broad framework, the details in relation to end of block assessments and clinical assessments for relevant Schools will be communicated directly by the Schools to the affected students. With regard to the academic activities for the School of Oral Health Sciences’ Bachelor of Dental Surgery IV and V students, the exact assessment dates will be communicated directly by the School to the affected students.

Finally, for specific cohort of students enrolled for Bachelor of Nursing and other programmes in the School of Health Care Sciences, the School will also communicate the exact dates for their assessments, given mandatory clinical requirements/quotas to be completed for some of these programmes. For more information, see the updated calendar attached, you may contact Mr. Sylvester Khohliso, Deputy Registrar: Academic Administration at
