External Examiners


External Examiners are regarded as full and equal members of Examining Boards whose key role is to provide advice and guidance, and to give an external perspective to the Board. While External Examiners do not have a right of veto on Board decisions, Examining Boards pay careful attention to the reports and recommendations they make.
