The University of Canterbury runs two Examination Periods in June and October/November.
The End-of-year Examinations will take place from Monday 1 November to Saturday 13 November. Please note, there are no exams on Sunday or Show Day Friday 12 November.
The final Examination timetable will be available on Friday, 22 October.
The Examinations Office will be sending out your final Personal Timetable e-mail on Friday 22 October. This will include the date/time, duration, type of exam, room (if any) and the exam conditions or each of your exams. For a full list and further information go to
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 (e.g. international time differences).
Your location and the adjusted start times will be on your Personal Timetable. If you do not receive this information, please contact the Examinations Office.
Please note that The Examination Timetable assumes that UC is operating at COVID Level 1 or 2. If we move to Level 3 or higher, the timetable will change.
Prepare for your exams
Infringement of the Examination Regulations is very serious. Please inform yourself.
If you are affected by an exam clash, alternative arrangements will be made for you.
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.
If you have a temporary or permanent disability you can apply for special exam arrangements.
