You can see an overview of the 2019/20 academic year here. This will show you the breakdown of each semester, the vacation times and so forth. Please bear in mind that the majority of courses do not have teaching during trimester 3, however if you are on an accelerated course, a course with a mid-year start, or a course aligned to a health care profession, you will be taught during this period.
