Current Undergraduate External Examiners

To ensure that the University's external examining arrangements are transparent, we publish the names and home institutions of our external examiners who are currently in post.

The role of an external examiner is to consider whether:

  • the University is maintaining the threshold academic standards for its awards in accordance with formal expectations at a national level
  • our assessment process measure student achievement rigorously and fairly and are conducted in line with University policies and procedures
  • the academic standards and the achievement of our students are comparable with those in other higher education institutions.

It is not appropriate for students to contact the external examiner for their course.
