Academic Results Release Dates

What is the timeline for approval of my results and why can’t they be approved before the next term starts?

  • Most units or modules require last assignments to be submitted in the last two weeks of trimester, and exams are held in the last week (Week 12).
  • Teaching staff then need to mark the assessments and this process takes around three weeks.
  • Results are then recorded in an online grade book.
  • It takes about five days to download the results into the student management system and, very importantly, to validate those results which are then made available to the School.
  • The School then analyses those results for each student. Some changes are made to results at this time and the reasons for those changes are recorded and reported on to the Board of Examiners. The School must be satisfied that the marks for their students are correct.
  • The Board of Examiners then meets as a last stage in the process to approve results which can then be released to students.
