At least one external examiner is appointed to every programme of study in order to provide independent and impartial advice on the academic standards set and student achievement against those standards.
The information presented here is to assist external examiners in their role. If you are an external examiner and have any questions regarding your role, or if you would like to provide feedback on the information presented here, please contact the Academic Quality & Standards Office of the Academic Registry on email@example.com or by telephone on 0113 283 7340.
