Assessment Timetable 2021

For the academic year 2020/21, there is an expectation that most assessment will be online (i.e. digital and electronic submissions).

However, some assessments will necessarily need to take place on campus (e.g. performances, laboratory work, etc.).  

Your schools are working to prepare alternative forms of assessment, where required.  

The University of Leeds will hold examinations/assessments across a number of periods during 2021.  Which period you will take your examinations/assessments in will depend on your cohort.  Please note your school may set other assessments during the academic year, submission details for these will be given by your school.
