***Please note STL’s academic calendar differs from the Peking University Shenzhen campus calendar insofar as it starts earlier and ends later, and operates on a quarter system not a semester system. Students must conform to the STL academic calendar in making all travel and other plans.
Quarters 1, 2, and 3 are 11 weeks long (10 weeks of class plus one week for exams). Quarter 4 is 8 weeks long (7 weeks of class plus one week for exams).
