UC Examinations

The University of Canterbury runs two Examination Periods in June and October/November.

The Mid-year Examinations will take place from Monday 13 June to Saturday 25 June. Please note, there are no exams on Sundays or Matariki Friday 24 June.

The Preliminary Examination Timetable will be available on Friday, 8 April.

The Final Examination timetable will be available on Friday, 3 June.

The Examinations Office will be sending out your Final Personal Timetable via e-mail.  This will include the date/time, duration, type of exam, room (if any) and the exam conditions for each of your exams.

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 any adjusted start times will be on your Final Personal Timetable.  If you do not receive this information, please contact the Examinations Office.


It is your responsibility to check

the date, time and location of your exams and to download any necessary software to complete the exam.
