Calling all External Examiners – you can now record your External Examining roles on Core Portal

Being an external examiner is an important means of ensuring academic standards across the sector and provides valuable insights into academic practices at other institutions.

Why are we asking you to record this information?

The QAA requires universities to keep a record of academic staff undertaking external examining roles at other institutions. This information will also enable us to target professional development opportunities to support you in your role, e.g. the Degree Standards Project.

To add your information, log on to Core Portal:

  • Click on ‘My Profile’ (your photo)
  • Select ‘Other Information’ on the drop down list, followed by ‘External Examiners of Courses’.
  • Click on the blue ‘ADD’ button in the top right hand corner to update the institution, subject area, tenure and course type for your external examiner role.

It’s simple to do and should only take a couple of minutes.
