How is a semester at NOVA FCSH?

At NOVA FCSH, the school year consists of two semesters: the first runs from September to the end of January. The second from February to May. January and May (there are no classes) are the months where students take final classes exams (not every curricular units have them). During classes, they can do assignments or written tests (depending on academic degrees).
