Coronavirus Recovery: advice and latest information

Your Examinations

The University is actively working to provide a range of alternative assessments instead of on-site examinations which will now no longer take place for the remainder of the current Academic Year up to and including August 2020. Alternative assessments will not require your attendance at the University. Your College will provide you with further communication in due course in respect of the nature and forms of these alternative assessments and students are asked to wait for further notification at the current time.

For all courses leading to professional registration in the School of Medicine, College of Human and Health Sciences and the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law (Legal Practice Course only), students are advised to await specific information from their Colleges.

As the Swansea University Exams Office, we:

  • Facilitate the setting up and managing the main exam periods
  • Produce the main exam timetable, liaising closely with the Schools and Colleges
  • Provide support and make arrangements for students who receive provision for their exams

The University expects you to attend the exams for the modules on which you have enrolled in accordance with the official timetable. The conduct of University exams is governed by strict rules, set by the University, which include rules on absence from exams, conduct during an exam and academic misconduct. 

 

Examination Offences

Swansea University takes examination offences very seriously. 

Being caught committing an examination offence can have a devastating effect on your future career.

An examination offence, often referred to as 'unfair practice' or 'academic misconduct' constitutes any act whereby you obtain, attempt to obtain, an unpermitted advantage - whether for yourself or someone else.
