The academic year at Chalmers starts in August and ends in June the following year. The academic year consists of two semesters, Autumn (August– December) and Spring (January–June). The exact dates may vary from one year to another. Sweden has a system of credits (högskolepoäng); a normal 40-week academic year corresponds to 60 credits. The system is compatible with ECTS credits. Chalmers does not award ECTS grading.
Each semester is then divided into two study periods with 7 weeks of lectures followed by one week of examinations. There are also three re-sit opportunities during the year.
