Contingency Plans

Adverse Weather Conditions

In the event of adverse weather conditions during the examination period, students are advised to allocate additional time for travel to the University to ensure they arrive at examinations on time.


Volcanic Ash Contingencies

In extenuating circumstances, it is possible for a PhD viva voce to be held via video (preferably) or teleconferencing, providing the school’s Postgraduate Committee has given permission. Please see PhD regulations 19.3.

Similarly, Examination Boards could be held via videoconferencing in extenuating circumstances. Teleconferencing may be used in an emergency situation.

Please keep the Examinations Office informed of how you plan to manage this.
