Are you interested in becoming an External Examiner?

  • Do you want to add value to your CV?
  • Are you looking for evidence against the Academic Careers Framework?
  • Do you want to develop your external profile?

If yes, becoming an External Examiner (EE) can support all of these objectives.  Our interactive workshops are designed for staff who have not done External Examining before and would like to find out more.  The workshops will cover:
