I would start off by creating a calendar table.

In the Modelling tab at the top of Power BI desktop, click on "New Table", and then enter the following code:

 

Calendar =
ADDCOLUMNS (
    CALENDAR (
        MIN ( 'Academic Years'[Start Date] ),
        MAX ( 'Academic Years'[Start Date] )
    ),
    "DateAsInteger", FORMAT ( [Date], "DDMMYYYY" ),
    "Year", YEAR ( [Date] )
)

 

Note I'm assuming here that your start date and end date columns are in a separate table called 'Academic Years'.

 

This will create a new table in which the first column is a list of dates between the start of the first academic year and the end of the final academic year in your initial 'Academic Years' table.

 

Now you can create a new column in your Calendar table that identifies which academic year each date falls into.

 

Academic Year = 
IF (
    MONTH('Calendar'[Date]) <= 9,
    "AY"
        & RIGHT( VALUE('Calendar'[Year]),2)-1 & "/" & RIGHT( VALUE('Calendar'[Year]),2),
    "AY"
        & RIGHT( VALUE('Calendar'[Year]),2) & "/" & RIGHT( VALUE('Calendar'[Year]),2) + 1
)

 

You can then use this column as a filter to select which academic year you would like to view. (Ensure the 'Calendar' table is connected to the data you are filtering first.

Thanks for your help, But am not sure if this possible, I want my report to be filtered by Academic Year (Periods) and also an exact date for example, if I want my report to display student that attended a session between 01/01/2020 and 31/01/2020.
