How are exams scheduled throughout the year?


Are exams in UK universities taken periodically throughout the study year like in Italy? If not, how does the examination system work?

Hi Michele,

Interesting question!

Each course has its own regulations, so you need to check the information in university websites.

Most degree courses are assessed by a combination of examinations, coursework, practicals and long essay, as appropriate. The timing will vary according to the curriculum of each programme.

I hope this helps!
