The University’s approach to external examining is aligned with the principles, expectation and indicators of sound practice set out in the UK Quality Code. Specifically, we ask our external examiners to provide an independent and impartial view of our academic standards including comparability with other higher education providers, the quality of our assessments and opportunities for enhancement.
