Supervision of external exams

Examination materials supplied by the home institution should include any instructions the invigilator is to observe during the exam.  UNSW will strive to observe all such instructions, local conditions/regulations and laws permitting.

UNSW offers examination administration on a fee-for-service basis. A fee of $AUD190 per candidate per session (plus GST where applicable) will be charged.

The fee covers:
