The University of Dundee is seeking to appoint an External Examiner in the Adult field for our Pre-registration Nursing Programme – Adult.

You would also be asked to review work by students on the relevant return-to-practice programme. Please note that there may be a change in modules from 2020 due to a new programme currently being developed.

The University requires that External Examiners have qualifications at least equivalent to the Programme being examined, so the successful applicants will possess a Masters Degree. A recordable teaching qualification is also essential for this post.
