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 External Examiner appointment process (PDF). 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.
