Breaks during the academic year
There are no official breaks during the semesters but there might be periods without lectures. You can check that in your schedule. Note, however, that the schedules are usually not finished until right before the programme or course start.
The autumn semester ends in January and thus lasts over Christmas. However, some courses may finish before this. For exchange students who are in Borås for the autumn semester, it is advisable to discuss this with your course coordinator before you book your return travel to ensure that you complete all the necessary tasks that are required of you. Failure to do so may result in your not receiving your credits.
