Exam Periods and Publication Dates

Northumbria University holds 3 major examinations periods during the Academic Calendar

  • Semester 1 (2 weeks January)
  • Semester 2 (3 weeks May)
  • Re-assessment (1 week in August)

These periods will apply to most taught programmes. However it should be noted that there are variances across the University in course dates and professional body requirements, especially on some programmes relating to healthcare education, teacher training and law. Therefore whilst examination activity does take place during most months of the calendar year only the major periods, as above, are published.

Exam Publication Dates

Due to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic the exam timetable for the 2020/2021 semester two period will be published the week commencing 29th March. Full information will be made available via the individual module blackboard sites.

The semester two examinations will take place between 10th and 28th May 2021.

A static timetable will be published but will contain information regarding the date and time of each exam, more specific information regarding exam details, as in Semester 1 and resits last academic year, will be published via module sites on blackboard.
