What is an invigilated exam?

An invigilated exam means that there will be a UNSW staff member supervising the exam.

Exams can be either invigilated or non-invigilated and can differ for each course. Make sure to check the exam delivery type for each course on Moodle.

Types of exams

  • In-person invigilated exams: You will be supervised by a UNSW staff member in-person on Kensington campus. If your in-person exam is hosted on the assessment platform Inspera, you will need to bring your own laptop for the exam.
  • Online invigilated exams: Only available to international offshore students who are unable to return to Australia due to COVID-19. The Exams team will email you before Week 8 of term with all the information you need to set up your exam on Inspera.
  • Online non-invigilated exams: Held remotely on Inspera or another online platform determined by your School.

Do I need to come to campus for my exam?
