The 2022-2023 school year calendar has reached its final version. The name semesters is removed, and the division of the school year changes. The counties in Romania will have a different calendar structure.
The structure of the new school year will be divided into modules, this time, eliminating the name “semesters” and the division of the school year introduced in 1998.
In the 2022-2023 school year, there will be 5 modules, separated by 5 holidays.
