It’s important to make sure you’re available for your exams and feel prepared by knowing when and where they’ll take place.

At the beginning of the academic year you’ll receive key information about your assessments in the Programme/Module Handbook. This includes a schedule of assessment activities and submission dates to help you plan.

You must attend all the exams associated with your programme at the time and place published.

There are five calendars with dedicated assessment periods. If you’re not sure what calendar you’re on, please contact your programme team.
