University External Examiner Induction

Our External Examiner Induction Sessions take place twice per academic year, usually around December during Semester 1 and around March-April during Semester 2. Dates will be confirmed with newly appointed External Examiners closer to the date.

Aspects to be covered during the Induction Session will include:

  • Introduction to City's aims, character, strategy
  • Types and roles of External Examiner at City and why they are important
  • What you need to know about the Programme
  • City's policies on assessment and feedback
  • The External Examiner's Annual Report
  • The broader HE context
  • Question and answer session

There will be an hour set aside for Programme Directors and External Examiners to have one-to-one programme-specific induction sessions, further to the University induction.
