Academic Calendar

Academic year

The academic year consists of 40 weeks, divided into two semesters. Each semester is divided into two quarters, and full-time study is considered to be two courses per quarter, four courses per semester or eight per year. The autumn semester runs from the end of August through December, ending before the Christmas holiday. The spring semester runs from mid January until the beginning of June. There is usually a two-week teaching break at Christmas.

There is no break between or during the quarters so international students wishing to travel for more than a weekend in Sweden or Europe should do so either before or after their study period at JIBS.

Introduction week

During the first week of each semester, JIBS organises an introduction week for international students, which is compulsory. This week consists of a number of activities such as an introduction to Swedish language and culture, study visits, presentations of the student union and other important university organizations, social activities, etc.
