Students and parents at a congregationExaminations

The Exams Office manages the University's exam processes. We compile and publish the exam timetables, train and appoint invigilators, produce undergraduate pass lists and student results and are responsible for the administration of exam papers.

We also provide support for exam candidates with alternative arrangements and provide guidance to schools regarding Boards of Examiners and the maintenance of assessment records.

Awards including Congregations

The term congregation means, a gathering of members of the University. At the congregation a presiding officer will acknowledge the achievements of graduates.

The Awards Office is responsible for the organisation of these ceremonies at Newcastle University. Congregation is the culmination of all your hard work during your time at Newcastle University and we are keen to make the day special.

Visit the Awards Office web pages to find out further information including the congregations schedules.
