The University of Dundee is seeking to appoint an External Examiner for our BSc (post-registration) and MSc Nursing Programmes. We offer programmes in leadership, quality improvement, advanced practice and nursing. You would also be asked to review work by students on research, work-based learning modules and dissertations.

External Examiners are also asked to undertake related activities, such as reviewing exam papers and new assessments. Depending on workload, the successful candidate may also be asked to examine other PQ modules.

The University requires that External Examiners have qualifications at least equivalent to the Programme being examined, so the successful applicant will possess a Masters Degree. A teaching qualification recorded with the NMC or Fellow of Higher Education Academy is also required.

All appointments will be from 1 September 2019 and will be initially for a three year period.
