External examiner reports


External Examiners are required to submit an electronic report on the appropriate form 1 (one) month following the final Assessment Sub-Board Meeting (where final degree awards have been agreed). The report must be in Word format (.doc) when submitted. For taught programmes, there are different report forms depending on which Board the programme being examined falls under (e.g. an Undergraduate report form or a Postgraduate report form. 

For those King's Online Managed programmes a report should be submitted following the Annual Faculty Assessment Board meeting.


If an External Examiner covers more than one Board then a separate report must be submitted for each Board.


A fee claim form should be submitted with the report so that the External Examiner's annual fee can be paid.


Officers of the College, Assessment Board Chairs and Assessment Sub-Board Chairs will respond where appropriate to the report.


The full procedure for the consideration of External Examiner reports is available on the College Governance Zone.


If an External Examiner is appointed but will not be acting that year, the Quality, Standards and Enhancement team should be informed so that a report is not expected and follow-up reminders are then not sent.


Please also note that candidates should not be named in the report. If External Examiners wishes to bring any issues pertaining to a particular student to to the attention of the Board this should be done seperately using the candidate number to preserve anonymity.


Arrangements for the payment of your fee will be made upon receipt of this completed report and a signed One-Off Fee Payment Form. Further details on fee payments and expenses, including relevant form downloads, can be found here.
