It is important to note that courses at UNIBE Costa Rica are based on 16-week terms (or 4 month periods) with a two-week break after every term. This allows three terms in a calendar year, which are:
I. January to April
II. May to August
III. September to December
A printed version of the academic calendar is given to students during the orientation session, which takes place a week prior to the beginning of class.
Below is the calendar for the 2011 academic year*.
