We are seeking an external examiner to join our vibrant team from September 2022. The post is for our highly successful two year problem based learning MSc occupational therapy (pre-registration) programme.

The University of Brighton offers extensive support for external examiners and holds workshops annually. Further support is also provided by the Course Leader and the teaching team. The course holds three remote examination boards each year. External examiner colleagues are warmly welcomed should they wish to visit the school and meet the team and our students.

The role involves being an external examiner across a varied range of academic and practice placement modules, working alongside the current experienced external examiner.
