SU Annual Report

Please find below our SU Annual Report for 2019/20

 

Exams & Academic Year 2020/2021

Here’s some updates from SU Education Officer Cameron to recent student queries:

When will repeat exams take place?

Repeat exams will take place from 10th-21st Aug and these will also take the form of online or remote assessments. However, if possible and Government guidelines allowing, facilities may be made available to students who cannot complete remote assessments.

Will these exams be capped?

All repeat examinations will be uncapped this year and we are awaiting confirmation about the repeat fee.

When will results be issued?

Undergraduate results will be released 3rd-10th July

Postgraduate results will be released from 17th July (full programme results will be issued after thesis submission)

Why can’t we start like usual in September?

With the moving of exam results, repeat exams and the need for online teaching for large lectures more time is needed to ensure:

  • sufficient time for these processes to take place
  • sufficient time for the digitizing of large material for different courses

Why can’t we have exams before Christmas?

Each semester is 12 weeks long to ensure you have enough time to engage in your academic work and meet the learning outcomes of each module, this is key to the integrity of your degree. This means that starting on 28th Sept, in order to have a 12 week semester, your semester 1 finish date is 18th Dec. This does not leave sufficient time for exams before Christmas.

When are Semester 1 2020/2021 exams?

Semester 1 exams for 2020/2021 will start 11th Jan and finish 22nd Jan 2021, it is still unclear if these will be in person or online and they will be subject to government and health guidelines.

Why can’t we start Semester 2 directly after exams?

Semester 2 2021 starts 8th Feb, 2 weeks after the end of Semester 1 exams. This is to allow for a number of things:

  • Teaching for 1st years does not end until 29th Jan

Tips for Looking After Yourself During Exams

  • Don’t isolate yourself – Exam time can be very lonely especially now we are all self-isolating. Try to make a conscious effort to arrange online meet ups, phone calls or Facetime with friends, or plan something nice at the end of a day of study with others like taking a free exercise class over Zoom. Cutting yourself off from the world is not a good idea.
  • Don’t be a hero – Surviving on 2 hours sleep and 7 cans of red bull is not the way the human body was meant to function. Schedule in some breaks and exercise during your day – a 30 minute walk in your 2km radius can work wonders.
  • Eat regularly – You don’t have to eat like a nutritionist, but eating three meals a day and getting in some healthy snacks will keep you on track. Food fuels your body, so if you’re constantly eating junk you won’t feel great.
  • Sleep regularly – Many people completely change their sleep patterns during exam time. If you can, try to fit in 7-8 hours’ sleep and follow a routine.
  • Stay hydrated – Water is your friend!
  • Ask for help if you need it

Student Health Unit Update

If you need to contact them regarding any health concerns, prescription requests, blood tests, STI screening or vaccinations please phone 091 494 337 or 083 325 0034 Mon-Fri 9.15am-12.30pm & 2.30pm-4.30pm. If you can’t reach them by phone email healthunit@nuigalway.ie to arrange a call back.
