The Michaelmas term is the first term of the academic year (starting in October) at Oxford University and many other British and Irish schools and universities.

The name is derived from the Feast of St. Michael and all Angels, which falls on September 29th.

At Oxford, the Michaelmas term is followed by the Hilary term (Spring) and the Trinity term (Summer).
