Subject external examiners are expected to audit a sample of student work and will be invited to comment on draft assessments (coursework briefs and examination papers) that comprise the major elements of assessment associated with a module. Subject external examiners are required to submit formal feedback on their audit of sample student work, by completing a module summary report form prior to the Programme Assessment Board and confirming their agreement to the marks for all modules within their remit.

Subject external examiners are not required to attend assessment boards. There will be regular communication with module leaders and completion of an annual monitoring report. You may also be asked to meet with practice partners and students. The External Examiner is required to submit an annual report, following which payment is made.
