If you are studying undergraduate units you can start at the beginning of any of the four Study Periods each year, each lasting 13 weeks. Most postgraduate courses are offered in three Sessions per year, with each Session lasting 14 weeks.
Exams are usually held in the week following the end of each Study Period or Session.

This is beneficial for students who need to develop a specialisation or prefer not to commit to the whole study period. Depending on the units studied, you can exit with a Graduate Certificate in Public Health.
