King's Experience

Apply to become an assessor

King’s Experience offers paid academic practice opportunities to postgraduate researchers at King’s.

King’s Experience oversees assessment for a range of non-academic credit bearing Awards, including the King’s Experience Global, London, Interdisciplinary, and Research Awards (all run by King’s Experience), the Principal’s Global Leadership Award, the King’s Leadership and Professional Skills Award, King's Enterprise Award, and the King's Cultural Experience Award.

The role involves marking no more than 20 assessments, for which training is provided. Furthermore, Assessors are paid £300 for their work (which may be subject to tax).

King’s Awards are innovative. For example, participants on the King’s Experience Global and London Awards can submit an essay for their assessment, but they can also submit a business plan, or an academic poster, or publish a website. A receptive approach to innovative assessments is therefore a considerable asset for this role.

Past Assessor Testimonials

"I really enjoyed working as an assessor for the King's Experience Awards. Throughout the marking process the Awards team has been supportive, providing training, guidance and advice when needed. The marking scheme is well-defined and easy to follow. My experience as an assessor has led to a better understanding of the value of analytical thinking and brevity of expression which are hallmarks of effective writing".
