External Examiner Procedure

B&FC programmes require at least one external examiner(s) for each validated programme.

Unless there is a specific and valid reason to justify an exception, no B&FC award shall be made without the scrutiny of an external examiner.

External examiners are generally appointed to a programme in its entirety but may to a lesser extent be appointed to specific awards, streams and/or modules.

This document includes the various forms and operational practices which support the external examiner role.
