Important Information & Resources for Online Assessments

AIT is committed to ensuring the academic integrity of the assessment methods that are designed and implemented during the end of semester assessment period. This is in the context of the ongoing non-availability of physical examinations on campus for the 2020/21 period, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions which apply to on-campus activity. 

Timetables will be available on the AIT examinations webpage.
