What if we cannot place you in the scheduled placement period?

We aim to place you in the scheduled placement period. However, in a small number of cases this may not be possible.

If this occurs we will contact you prior to your placement and advise you that we are moving your placement to the examination period. Examination period dates change from year to year, so it is best to refer to the placement calendars.

If moving your placement to the examination period will affect your ability to submit assessment tasks on time or sit exams, we advise you to contact the academic in charge of the assessment directly for advice on extensions, etc. If an Academic requires proof of your placement being moved, please submit  your ;request via and we will provide this for you.
