The academic year in Sweden is divided into two semesters. The autumn semester begins at the end of August and lasts until mid-January. The spring semester runs from mid-January to the beginning of June. Full-time studies correspond approximately to a 40-hour work week. Students normally study one course at a time.
It should be noted that entry to a Master's degree programme at Örebro University does not provide entry to Ph.D. studies at the university.
