Academic Calendar

Windesheim's academic year is divided into two semesters. One starts in autumn and the other starts in spring. 

If you come here on an international exchange, you'll usually stay for one or two semesters. The semesters are divided into terms. There are a few breaks in the course of the academic year. If you come to follow our BA programme Global Project and Change Management, you'll normally spend the whole of your first and second academic years here. In years 3 and 4, you have the option of studying abroad.
