Universiti Putra Malaysia practices the semester system.
Each session of the academic year is divided into two semesters of 18 week of instruction/semester:
- First Semester (September - January)
- Second Semester (February � June).
A full-time student is required to register and attend a total 12 to 21 credits of courses per semester. In general the performance of students in each course is by continuous assessment including one final examination.
For the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine programme, the minimum duration is 5 years or 10 semesters with a total credit of not less than 188. If necessary to repeat courses, the curriculum regulations permit students to apply for extension of study duration.
