Exam and Assessment Timetable release: Wednesday, 3 April

Timetables on computer

Your exam and assessment timetable for semester two will be available to view from 12pm BST on Wednesday, 3 April.

Your timetable will be available in two parts:

  • When the timetable has been released, you can view any centrally-organised University exams – either online exams (up to 24 hours in length) or any in-person exams (in a room on campus) – on the Exam Timetable Portal. Alternatively, once the timetable has been released, you can access the portal via the Student Intranet page by clicking ‘Exam timetable’ within the Popular Links section.

Remember, the Timetable Portal will only be available from Wednesday, 3 April onwards.

  • Your School or Department will communicate information to you separately about locally organised assessments (online exam-style assessment completed over a longer timeframe up to five days), in-class tests, or coursework.

Don’t forget, your timetable will not be emailed to you.
