Review of External Examining Arrangements in Universities and Colleges in the UK: Final Report and Recommendations
Universities UK
This report outlines the final recommendations of the review of external examining arrangements undertaken by UUK and GuildHE and chaired by Professor Dame Janet Finch, former Vice-Chancellor of Keele University. The review found that, on the whole, external examining arrangements in the UK are working well, but the report offers recommendations for increasing the degree of consistency across institutions and improving levels of transparency. The report strongly advises the adoption of the recommendations by universities as soon as possible and invites the Quality Assurance Agency to incorporate them in the ongoing development of the Academic Infrastructure. Appended are: (1) Scope of the Review; (2) National criteria for the appointment of external examiners; and (3) External examiners' report checklist.
