Do I have to apply for every exam period?
Yes, you must apply online, and have your application accepted for each exam period that you want to sit overseas.
Completing an application form only entitles you to apply for the next scheduled exam period. Do not wait until you receive official notification via the Blue Castle 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.
I am a UK based student spending time in UNM/UNNC. Can I take my assessments back in the UK?
UK-based students spending time on a year abroad in UNM or UNNC who wish to take their assessments in the UK, MUST contact the Exams Office in UNM or UNNC to make the necessary arrangements. These arrangements ARE NOT made by the UK Exams Ops.
Students participating in a University of Nottingham Inter Campus exchange who must sit an examination for a module at a location different from where it was originally sat/scheduled must apply to sit “overseas” through the course’s original campus.
For example, a UNUK-based student who has returned to the UK and needs to re-sit an exam for a course they were enrolled on at UNNC/UNM during an exchange must apply to sit “overseas” through UNNC/UNM – even though the UK may not be considered “overseas” to this student. Please note there are strict deadlines in place.

I am an international UK based student and I want to take my exams back in my home country. Can I do this and how?
There are several steps to this process and you will need to complete ALL of them.
STEP 1: CHECK THAT YOU HAVE PERMISSION
You must have permission for EVERY module/course you wish to take. Below if a spreadsheet with pre-approved modules/courses. If your course/module is not on the list, you must contact the administering School/Department office for approval. 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 email the Exams Office.
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 Ops as soon as possible. You may have to be prepared to travel at your own expense.
STEP 3: APPLY ONLINE
The Overseas Application is closed due to Covid-19.
