Appointment Process

The University operates a robust appointment process for its External Examiner roles, setting out criteria and restrictions on appointment in line with the QAA Quality Code and adopted sector norms. We have provided a brief overview of the appointment process. More detailed guidance on the appointment criteria can be found in the Taught programmes procedures‌, along with further information on the selection process.

Note: External Examiners are not permitted to do any work and the University cannot pay any fees or expenses until the right to work verification is completed.
