Full Term

Full Term in the universities of Oxford and Cambridge refers to the eight weeks within the longer academic term during which lectures are given and students are required to be in residence. The dates of Full Term may differ from year to year within the fixed dates of the whole term (simply, but ambiguously, referred to as 'Term' with a capital, or occasionally 'statutory term').

Famous quotes containing the words full and/or term:

    Wooing, wedding, and repenting, is as a Scotch jig, a measure, and a cinquepace; the first suit is hot and hasty, like a Scotch jig, and full as fantastical; the wedding, mannerly-modest, as a measure, full of state and ancientry; and then comes repentance and, with his bad legs, falls into the cinquepace faster and faster, till he sink into his grave.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Orlando. Who stays it still withal?
    Rosalind. With lawyers in the vacation; for they sleep
    between term and term, and then they perceive not how Time
    moves.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
