Do not wait until you receive official notification via the Portal or an official letter from the University before applying to sit overseas. As soon as your School informs you of your results you must start making the arrangements.
YOU MUST APPLY ONLINE FOR EACH EXAM PERIOD YOU WILL BE WANTING TO SIT OVERSEAS. COMPLETING AN APPLICATION FORM ONLY ENTITLES YOU TO APPLY FOR THE NEXT SCHEDULED EXAM PERIOD.
UK-based students spending time on a year abroad in Malaysia or Ningbo wishing to take their assessments in the UK MUST contact the Exams Office at Malaysia or Ningbo to make arrangements. Do not use the form below.
You must follow the steps below before completing the application form.
STEP 1: CHECK COURSE PERMISSIONS
Check if your UNUK exams can or cannot be taken overseas. Some may require permission.
If permission is required for any of your exams, you must contact the administering School/Department office for approval. You must have permission for EACH module/course you wish to take. If any of your exams cannot be taken overseas or you have not received the correct permissions, your application could be refused and you would have to take your exams in Nottingham.
STEP 2: CONTACT OVERSEAS INSTITUTION
Contact an approved overseas institution to ask if they are able to facilitate your exam/s. It is your responsibility to do this. If they need to contact the University please ask them to contact the Exams Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Exams Office will only make contact with the overseas institutions after the application deadline has passed.
If there is not an approved institution within a reasonable distance to you, please contact the Exams Office as soon as possible. You may have to be prepared to travel.
Please be aware that if your chosen institution delay returning your exam scripts to the University there could be a delay in marking and therefore issues with your progression.
Students with alternative exam arrangements: If you have been assessed by Academic/Disability support and you have adjustments to your exams such as additional time or a separate room, it is your responsibility to check whether your overseas institution are able to facilitate your requirements. Please also contact the Exams Office as early as possible, particularly if you require a support worker, use of a PC to type your exams or any other special equipment. Every effort will be made to ensure that reasonable exam adjustments will be accommodated overseas, however they cannot be guaranteed.
STEP 3: APPLY
Due to the current exceptional circumstances, and in co-operation with our colleagues at Ningbo Campus, late applications are being accepted for UNN and for other overseas locations as an expression of interest.
Submitting your application does not guarantee that you will be able to take your exams overseas, as current circumstances are beyond our control. Therefore we strongly advise that students do not make travel arrangements specific to taking exams overseas. We will update students as the situation becomes clearer over the coming weeks.
