Spring Terms at UCL
Your orientation at UCL's School of Public Policy will be in early January (dates TBD, but please reserve Thursday, January 4, 2018 and Friday January 5, 2018). As a result, you must plan to arrive in London no later than January 3, 2018.
Classes at UCL for the spring, called “Term 2”, will begin on Monday, January 8, 2018 and end on Friday, March 23, 2018.
If you choose to leave London after Term 2, note that you may need to return to London at some point in Term 3 (Monday, April 23 - Friday, June 8, 2018). For example, the examination for one of the required courses was on May 4 in 2016 so it will be on a similar date in 2018. If you choose an elective course that requires an in-class examination, you may have an examination at a later date (it is typically possible to choose electives that do not have an in-class examination). If your elective course instead requires an essay paper, you must submit a hard copy of the paper. You can choose to mail the paper via post but it must meet the exact deadline, otherwise the grade will be penalized. This is a strict policy, which UCL will outline and explain to you.

You will begin discussing ideas your Capstone project in the fall term while you are at Wagner. In April you will begin to solely focus on your Capstone project and the final deliverable will be due on July 31. The content and locations of the projects will be discussed in the fall and winter under advisement with the Global EMPA faculty.
SEPTEMBER 2018 GRADUATION
You will officially graduate from the program in September 2018. You will receive an email from NYU Wagner later in the Fall 2017 semester outlining when and how to apply for September 2018 graduation. Your diploma will be mailed to your permanent address, as listed in Albert, approximately eight weeks after your September graduation date.
NYU has only one commencement ceremony per year, which is in mid May. Wagner's Convocation ceremony is also once per year and typically the day before or the day after the NYU Commencement ceremony. More information on NYU commencement and convocation ceremonies can be found here.
