Most Universities and Colleges usually run from early September until the end of April or early May. Often this winter session is split into two terms running September to December and January to April. Various forms of summer studies may be offered May to August. Some, run a full tri-semester system, providing full courses during summer. There are a few school boards in Canada experimenting with year-round schooling.
