The University of Canterbury runs two Examination Periods in June and October/November.
The Examination timetable is normally released at the end of the fifth week of each semester.
Each student will receive a personal e-mail which lists all the student's examinations/tests that are scheduled in the Exam Period. Please make sure that you check the dates and times of your examinations carefully. Students are expected to be available to sit their exams at the dates/times scheduled unless there are reasons outside of their control. For information see Clashes and alternative arrangements.
The Examination Timetable for the End-of-year Examination will be delayed as a result of recent COVID developments. The expected date of release is now Wednesday 16 September. Please check this page for updated information.
It is your responsibility to check
the date, time and location of your exams
Prepare for your exams
Infringement of the Examination Regulations is very serious. Please inform yourself.

Coping with the unexpected
There are two categories of Special Consideration, for assessment and late discontinuation.
If you miss an exam you must contact the Examinations Office as soon as possible.
