Below are examples of academic calendars at a Chinese university and high school.
Schools in China have discretion when setting their academic calendars. The biggest variance of dates between schools usually occur around long holidays, such as the summer break, the National Holiday in October, and Chinese New Year in the winter.
It's also important to note that an institution's calendars can vary greatly from year to year. This is because many Chinese holidays follow the lunar calendar. For example, Chinese New Year fell on February 5 in 2019 and January 25 in 2020. In 2021, it will fall on February 12.
