External examiner annual reports

External Examiner Annual Reports are a really important aspect of our quality assurance.

When you submit your report, please also complete a Fees and Expenses Claim Form. We use this to pay your external examiner fee so you must fill it in and submit it with your annual report, even if you do not need to claim any expenses.

Please note that your Annual Report will be made available to relevant staff and students and it will also be accessible under the Freedom of Information Act (2000). If you wish to raise issues in stricter confidence, in addition you may send a confidential report to the Vice-Chancellor.
