Student support for examinations

The Library's AskUs service provides student support for examinations including school-based and digital assessments. If you are a course coordinator and would like your students to have access to online support for school-based exams, please provide all online exam details for this semester.  

Please note that at least two weeks’ notice in advance of the scheduled assessment date is required to ensure exam support is available to students.


Student Academic Integrity module


The University strongly recommends that course coordinators encourage students to complete the compulsory Academic Integrity Modules (AIM) before submitting their first assessment task.
