UCEM examination centres are allocated based on the location of the listed home address and country of residence. Internationally, UCEM typically allocates one examination centre per country. However, the requirement for further examination centres is assessed based on each country’s individual demographic of registered students. It is important to be aware that whilst UCEM will strive to provide convenient and consistent examination centres based on your location, it is not always possible to provide a centre within your immediate local area and there is no guarantee of the same venue each semester.
The full venue addresses of allocated examination centres are provided within the candidate letters of which are sent via email prior to each examination period.
Should you feel that your allocated examination centre is not suitable, the Academic Registry Team are available to discuss the options available to you and assess the circumstances of any request prior to the examination centre change deadline.
For further information regarding examination centres, please refer to the Policy on Centre Provision under the My Assessment – Examinations area of the Student Hub section of the VLE.
Please note that UCEM are prohibited from arranging examinations at some examination centres due to local government regulations. This is currently inclusive of all examinations in Oman and MSc Construction Management or Foundation examinations in Hong Kong; however alternative arrangements are in place for these examinations.
