Due to COVID-19 the formal Trimester C and resit exam diet in August will not take place on campus.


Where applicable, module teams will design an alternative that can be undertaken while students and staff are off campus, for example an online examination, open book through GCU Learn, coursework, etc.. Full details will be provided for each module on GCU Learn, including the time available to students to complete.


All students should check their GCU Learn module pages for details on alternative assessments, including details of the type of alternative assessment and length of period being given to complete etc..


A timetable with dates of alternative assessments will be published here in mid-July, however you must also check your GCU Learn module pages for more details on any assessments you have during this period.
