Re-sits and re-takes

Hopefully, you will proceed successfully to the next stage of your studies. However, if you fail or underperform in any exams or modules this section provides information on your options for undertaking re-sits and re-takes.

The summer resit period takes place from Monday 9 August to Friday 27 August 2021.  Your school will make you aware of the days and times of your exams.  Please contact your Student Support office if you require further information. 

Re-sit/Re-take results will be released on Monday 20 September 2021.

This summer's resits and retakes will be supported by Canvas, the University’s new virtual learning environment (VLE), rather than VITAL. See the Canvas guide for more information.
