Do I get to choose? Will be recommended to your nearest exam centre or main campus within 150km of your address as listed in MySC. Will be allocated to sit all exams at the relevant on-campus location. Must sit exams at the campus you are enrolled to. 'FLX' enrolments are not considered 'Online & Distance Learning' for exam purposes. Students studying at partners are not considered "Online or Distance".
Students with a combination of Partner and ODL enrolments, may be required to sit their ODL exams at separate locations.
How to confirm or change? You will be asked to confirm or change your preferred exam location each semester via email NA NA NA NA

Students enrolled in courses as Online and Distance Learning (ODL) may be able to select their preferred exam location from our network of venues across the world.

ODL students have the opportunity to confirm or change their recommended exam centre, and will receive an email each semester.

Correspondence is sent to student email accounts (and preferred email addresses if applicable) specifying:

  1. A centre we have 'recommended' based on your address in MySC
  2. Instructions for confirming or changing that centre

We can arrange for exams to be sat internationally where required, however students may be required to travel further than 150km to their venue.

Students will receive confirmation of personal venue arrangements via email, including the exam venue location addresses upon publication of the final exam timetable.

Exam Centre Network

If you need to sit an exam internationally and it's not the list please select 'INTERNATIONAL (Not Listed)' from the list of centres, exams staff will be in touch to confirm further details.

If we do not yet have an off-campus venue within 150km of where you are:

  • We will make efforts to find one, and;
  • Some students may be given the opportunity to nominate their own non-standard exam centre or invigilator.

Non-standard exam centre nominations will be assessed by the Examinations Office, and only approved under exceptional circumstances. Federation University is not obligated to use student-nominated examination supervisors.

We reserve the right to allocate students to examination locations, and withdraw examination locations at our discretion.
