Upcoming Module Dates

Modules are structred with 6 weeks of in-session classes, and a 7th week "off" called intermission. Over intermission, students are given prep work to prepare them for the demands of the upcoming module.

Module names are created by combining the last two digits of the year with the number of the month the module starts. For example, the 2006 module started in June, 2020. Cohorts are referred to by program and the module number they started Module 1 in (2006BE and 2006FE).
