The University has made the decision to move all remaining Semester Two examinations online (with some exceptions).

Online examinations will be held from Saturday 14 November, through to the end of the examination period on Saturday 21 November, and applies to all University of Auckland students, regardless of which campus they attend. All campuses will remain open during this period, and staff can work on campus as normal.

There will be limited exceptions to online exams, for exams that need to be held on campus and in person for reasons such as performance assessments (e.g., music and dance), and professional accreditation requirements. All students in this category will be contacted directly with instructions. 

  • Scheduled exams start times will remain the same, but the online exams will run for an additional 30 minutes to allow for reading time and for starting and submitting exams.
  • Students will be able to login to Canvas and go to their course page for more information. If they have any concerns about this move to online exams, they would be able to contact AskAuckland for guidance.
