Salary Range:

We are seeking to appoint an external examiner for the BSc Professional Development in Health and Social Care and MSc Health Sciences (Open Award) within the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, Oxford Brookes University.

The BSc award is a one-year top up award to allow individuals with a Diploma in Higher Education or equivalent to build their study to a full degree. These students will normally be working in health and social care and will be offered a suite of modules which will increase their understanding of how research evidence and theory can enhance their practice.

The MSc award can be studied full-time or part-time on-campus or online. Students choose from across the range of modules in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences to build a bespoke programme at level 7. They can also bring in credit from prior postgraduate CPD credit. All students undertake a research methods module and dissertation to complete their MSc.

The suitable candidate for this role will be currently engaged in teaching of a cognate subject at BSc and MSc level. Experience of external examining is desirable.

The appointment is from the beginning of December 2021 for a term of four years. External Examiners are required to moderate assessments, attend examination committees, and to complete an annual report. External Examiners are also requested to provide comments on proposed modifications to modules and the development of new modules, within their area of expertise.
