Exam timetables

There are three main exam periods at Staffordshire in January, May and August  - the specific dates are available on the Important Dates webpage. Your course may also schedule exams outside of the main exam period and they will advise on the times/ locations for these.

Given the current Covid 19 situation and the challenges this presents, the University has made the decision from week commencing 17 January, that wherever possible, students will undertake exams online rather than require these to be done on campus. Exams prior to the 17 January will remain on campus. You should continue to prepare for your exams in line with your exam timetable and we will endeavour to keep assessments in line with the previously scheduled times.

There will be no changes to coursework and other non-exam assessment; teaching and practical assessment will continue to be on campus. Your course team will communicate any changes to your assessment.

Please note that the exam timetables may be subject to change and you should check back regularly for updated versions of the timetable as this will be the most up to date version. Please remember not to circulate any version of the timetable that you have downloaded in case it is out of date.

If you have a Learning Support Statement (LSS), you will be contacted separately with details of the arrangements that have been put in place for you, these may include different timings/ rooms to those listed in the main timetable. If you have an LSS and have not received these details by email ahead of your exams then please get in touch urgently.

If you have a clash (2 exams scheduled at the same time), or have not been advised of your LSS arrangements, please report it immediately to A.Thorley-Walchester@staffs.ac.uk

Get set for success

We want everything to go as smoothly as possible for you and we know that you are more likely to succeed if you are well prepared so please read through the exam timetable carefully and make sure you have familiarised yourself with the University’s Exam Regulations well in advance of the exams. The regulations will help you to understand what is expected of you and what you can expect from us.

Attendance at exams is compulsory and it is your responsibility to make sure you know which exam(s) you are undertaking, when and where. Make sure you arrive at the exam well in advance – we recommend at least 15 minutes ahead of the start time.

You will need proof of ID to sit your exam - so bring your student ID card with you. If you have lost your card, you will need to speak to a Money & Guidance Advisor (or visit an Information Point at Stafford or Shrewsbury).

Exam support

We know that exams can be daunting and that you may be feeling anxious ahead of this time. Your wellbeing is really important to us so there is lots of help and advice available from our student support teams on how to look after yourself and from Academic Study Skills on how to academically prepare for exams.

Keep up your productivity and motivation by joining in the fun and creative events across the campus.

Be organised and create a timetable, plan for work, leisure and fitness.
