The Department of Health Sciences at the University of York is a large and multidisciplinary department, offering a broad range of educational programmes in the health and social care field. We are seeking to appoint an external examiner for our new MSc Nursing programme, which is due to commence in January 2022.
This is a level 7 programme for graduates with degrees in subjects related to nursing that will lead to an MSc with professional registration as either an adult or mental health nurse. The role holder will have responsibility for all modules on the programme.
External examiners are required to review and evaluate assessment marking; be a member of the Board of Examiners and attend meetings; comment and give advice on programme content, balance and structure; and to complete an annual report as part of the University of York’s quality assurance mechanisms. The University requires external examiners to attend a minimum of one Board of Examiners meeting per year.
All appointments are subject to meeting the University’s criteria for the appointment of external examiners.
The successful applicant would be appointed with effect from October 2021 for a term of four academic years.
