Changes to the Academic Calendar – Introduction of Semester One Examinations

The 2016/17 academic calendar now includes a formal examination period at the end of semester 1.  The benefit of this is to facilitate early feedback on progress to students and reduce pressure on the timetabling of examinations at the end of the academic year.

What this means for you

Students registered on modules in 2016/17:

  • Examinations for Semester One modules will be scheduled to take place at the end of semester one in January 2017.
  • Examinations for Year Long and Semester Two modules will take place at the end of semester two in May 2017. 
  • Students who have been referred or deferred in an examination at the end of the 2016/17 academic year will be required to take their refer / defer examination in July 2017.

 

Students with outstanding referred or deferred examinations from previous academic years:

  • If you have an outstanding referred or deferred examination from a previous academic year, and the module is no longer running you will be required to take this examination at the end of semester two in May 2017.
  • If you have an outstanding referred or deferred examination from a previous academic year, and the module is running during the 2016/17 academic year, you will be required to take the examination at the same time as the current students.

 

2016/17 Examination Periods

Semester Start End
Semester One Tuesday 10 January 2017 Friday 20 January 2017
Semester Two Wednesday 3 May 2017 Friday 19 May 2017
Refer / Defer Monday 3 July 2017 Monday 10 July 2017

 

During these periods, examinations will start at either 10am, 2pm or 6pm.

Your examination(s) could be held at any University campus (Regent, Marylebone, Cavendish or Harrow). Find details of University site locations on the University’s website

 

Publication of Provisional and Final exam timetables

The provisional examination timetable will be published on the timetables webpage.

The final examination timetables will appear directly in your CMISGo timetable.

Semester Two 9 March 2017 30 March 2017
