Rail workers are due to strike on Friday 12 May, Saturday 13 May, Wednesday 31 May and Saturday 3 June.  

The strikes are likely to cause some disruption on national rail routes and services may also be disrupted by knock-on effects on the days prior to and following the strikes. We expect that the London Underground (Tube) will be running but may be busier than usual. 

Upcoming exams 

Please note: exams are going ahead as usual

  • You will be permitted late entry up to 45 minutes after the start of your examination, with no additional time given. 
  • If you are later than 45 minutes or unable to attend your exam, you must follow the Extenuating Circumstances process.

    If you are travelling to campus or to London ExCeL, please allow extra time to get to your destination. 

    Please keep following the news, and the TfL and National Rail websites to find out if your services are likely to be affected.
