External Examiner Reports

External Examiners are required to submit a report 1 (one) month following the final Assessment Sub-Board Meeting (where final degree awards have been agreed).

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

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

For a preview of the questions in the report please refer to the EE report sample. For further queries please contact the ARQS team

The Word Document version of the report form is still available to External Examiners but Examiners are encouraged to use the Microsoft Form where possible. Completed reports should be emailed to the ARQS team.

 Consideration of External Examiner Reports

The full procedure for the consideration of External Examiner reports can be found here (see page 13).

Suspension of Tenure

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

Payment of Fees

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.
