When do we need invigilators?

The Examinations Office employs invigilators to support the examination process throughout the year. For the main examination periods, exams are organised centrally by our office, and there are some exams throughout the academic year which are organised by other departments within the university.  

The main examination periods for the university are in January, May/June and August and we require a large number of invigilators during these periods. To find the dates for this academic year’s main examination periods, CLICK HERE
