The University of Cumbria is seeking to appoint an External Examiner with effect from March 2020.

Ideally interested applicants should have experience of external examining in at least one other Higher Education Institution but this is not compulsory.

The vacancy is for our BSc Nursing (all fields) and our Registered Nurse Degree Apprentice Programmes. We are looking for external examiners from all four fields of nursing.

Please note that we are unable to accept applications from you if:

  • You are currently professionally involved with members of the programme team
  • You have been employed within the previous five years by the University or at one of its associate institutions.

External examiners from each field will be responsible for field modules and some generic modules across the programme and would be expected to engage with students in practice.
