There are six exam periods during each academic year:

  • Autumn and autumn resit exams
  • Spring and spring resit exams
  • Summer and summer resit exams

For dates of each exam period see the Exam timetables page

Some modules have class test assessments which run outside of the exam period and are managed by the Faculty.   

The Timetabling, Exams and Graduation Team produce the exam timetable based on individual enrolled students’ registration on examined modules. The team wait until the student module change deadline has finished before running the student registration to ensure all selections are captured. Using specialist software, the exam timetable is calculated to ensure students don’t experience exam clashes based on their individual modules.  In 2022/2023 the team scheduled over 20,000 individual exam sittings for over 500 different exams.

Students will be emailed in advance of their exams.

Request to host an exam

The University of Stirling can host exams for other institutions.   

There would be a fee for the cost of booking a room and for the invigilator, which we will calculate on receipt of request. Due to other on campus events we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all requests. 

A request from the home institute confirming student details, the date and time of the exam(s) must be made to exams@stir.ac.uk at least 4 weeks before the exam is scheduled to take place.
