Induction and briefing event for new External Examiners

10:30 - 13:30

Council Chamber, Main Building

This induction and briefing meeting for newly-appointed external examiners at the University will provide an overview of:

  • the ways in which assessment policies and regulations operate at Cardiff;
  • the role and responsibilities of the external examiner;
  • the information that will be considered by exam boards and the ways in which this assists the external examiner’s role to support quality and standards;
  • the opportunities for external examiners to meet with students and the ways in which such engagements can best be facilitated;
  • the ways in which the reports provided by external examiners are managed and considered further in the University, and;
  • the administration and management of expenses and payments.

Lunch will be provided at the conclusion of the meeting for attendees and relevant staff from programmes for which you are External Examiner.  On receipt of bookings, we will request these colleagues liaise with you and to arrange, where possible, for you to visit the academic school in that afternoon and to meet with staff that you will be working with and/or students.

Cardiff University will meet any reasonable travel and subsistence costs associated with attendance at this event and will provide a fee of £100 to those who attend.
