January 2022 exam update

The University is planning to be fully open in January with planned examinations taking place on campus

21st December 2021

The University is continuing to follow Government guidelines regarding any protection measures that need to be in place to help keep students and staff safe from Covid-19.

As this time, the University is planning to be fully open in January, with examinations taking place on campus, as planned.

All students are expected to attend their exams in the venue as timetabled.

To help protect you, we are requiring everyone involved in the exams, students and staff, to have a negative lateral flow test within 24-hours before the exam, and have the result registered with the NHS service and the outcome reported on their mobile device.

If for any reason a student is unable to attend an exam, then they should look at the University’s Extenuating Circumstances policy, to see if they can apply for a deferred resit opportunity, without capping, which usually takes place in the summer for standard courses that started in September. 

Just to remind you that to claim Extenuating Circumstances you must provide evidence of the reason that you were unable to attend the exam. Evidence could be the result of a PCR test if Covid-19 related, medical certificate, or letter for other illness from a qualified doctor or counsellor etc.

The University will continue to monitor the situation and all Government guidelines, and inform you of any changes to the protection measures in place that may affect your exams or the teaching and learning provision in place in the new year.
