How to apply to work as an exam invigilator at Newcastle University.

Exams at Newcastle University

Each year, the Exams and Awards team schedules and manages over 2,500 different exams equating to over 100,000 individual exam sittings. On a typical day during the main exam periods, exams are run simultaneously across more than 40 different exam venues. These range from small venues for individual candidates to venues accommodating up to 350 candidates. Exams are held at venues based on campus as well as some located externally within the city. Some exams will also be run concurrently at the University’s external campuses in Singapore, Malaysia and London.

Importance of Invigilation

Exam invigilators play an integral role in helping us to ensure that:

  • the security of exams is maintained
  • exams are conducted in a fair and appropriate manner
  • all students are able to sit exams in a suitable environment
  • rules and procedures are applied consistently across all venues

While we welcome applications from current Postgraduate Research students, students of Undergraduate or Postgraduate Taught programmes cannot apply.

New invigilators must meet with the Exams team and attend a training session before they start. All invigilators are expected to be available for 50% of each exam period.

Please contact the Exams Office if you have any queries.

The application form is now closed and will open again in September 2020.
