*Many students will have exams on Saturday 14 January 2017.

If your home university's academic calendar clashes with Exeter's and you are required to be back (thereby missing Exeter's exam week) then most Colleges will arrange an alternative assessment.  The Business School do not arrange alternative assessment but will help you organise to sit the exams at your university.  Engineering and Psychology do not arrange alternative assessment and expect students to be at Exeter for the January exams.
