Volume 2: Programme Design, Approval, Monitoring and Review
Section 12: External Examiners (Taught Programmes)
In light of the uncertainty surrounding the 2020/21 academic session, and concerns raised by schools regarding difficulties in sourcing new External Examiners for the session, QED gained Academic/Management Board approval to extend exceptionally for a year all External Examiners' contracts, where they are happy to continue. The rationale for this is that existing Externals will have had first-hand experience of the University response to Covid-19 and won’t need significant briefing for the new session. This also takes a significant burden off School and support staff across the University in order that focus can be placed on other challenges. Schools will be supported by QED in seeking appointments for any new provision.
