Who to contact

For queries about assessments (eg assignments, projects, deadlines, submission, extensions, resits) and anything concerning your modules, marks or feedback (including your results from ANY assignment or exam) please contact your department directly. 

For queries about closed exam arrangements (eg location of exam venues, queries regarding your exam timetable) please contact the Exams Office on 

Exam Venues

Your exam venue is displayed on 'My Timetable'. If you have any problems accessing this please contact You will be informed of your seat number when you arrive at your exam venue. It is important that you attend the venue on your e:Vision timetable and sit in your allocated seat as failure to do so may result in you being marked absent. It is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of where your exam is taking place - missing your exam or being late due to not knowing your venue or going to the wrong place will not be considered an exceptional circumstance. 

If you have individual exam arrangements (eg as a result of a disability) your venue will be shown on your timetable.  You will have been placed in a specific room to ensure your arrangements can be put in place. Attending the exam in a different venue (even if the same exam is taking place there) will mean that your arrangements will not be available. 

Please note that we cannot provide secure storage for any belongings that you bring to your exams, nor can we guarantee that space will be available inside the exam venue for bags, coats etc. Such items may have to be left (unsupervised) outside the venue. Any items are left at your own risk, therefore we strongly recommend that you do not bring such items with you. Small personal belongings such as keys can be brought to your desk with you (you will not be permitted to touch them during the exam). Lockers are available around campus if you wish to make use of them for larger items. 

Academic misconduct

We're committed both to developing high standards of academic practice among our students and to safeguarding the standards of our academic awards by detecting and acting upon cases of academic misconduct.

If you use generative AI to complete an assessment, you run the risk of being found to have committed academic misconduct. We expect you not to use AI to generate assessment answers unless you have been explicitly told that you may or must do so.
