Assessment key dates & timetables
Examinations are defined as formal, invigilated (supervised) assessments.
Key dates for upcoming final assessment periods can be found on Exams and Results Page.
Official exam/Final Assessment timetables are published four weeks before the final assessment period.
Students are required to be available for the entire duration of the final assessment period. Exams may also be scheduled on Saturdays for which students need to be available.
Please check your timetable regularly leading up to the final assessment period as details may change.
About the timetable
- Most or all of your exams will be online with only a small number of exams delivered on-campus.

Exam delivery modes
Your exams will be delivered in one of three ways:
Information will be provided via your student LMS and Subject Coordinator.
Assessments are run on campus at their scheduled day and time at the location displayed. Please ensure you arrive at the venue early to check your seat allocation.
Assessments are run online via LMS – check the exam timetable to see where you will sit your exam. If a physical room is listed in the location details, you will sit the exam in a computer room on campus. Where the timetable states 'online' for location, we will send you an email with further information. More information regarding online hybrid exams can be found on the guidelines to sitting your exam page.
If you can’t complete an online assessment from home
We recommend booking a teaching room on campus.
If your Subject Coordinator has scheduled an ‘in house’ assessment, which does not appear on the timetable but is at the same time as a scheduled assessment, you will need to contact your Subject Coordinator to request an alternate time for the ‘in house’ assessment.
If you cannot attend your scheduled assessment you can check if you are eligible to apply for an Alternative Assessment Schedule.
