External examiners for collaborative programmes of study are appointed by the University and, as for internal programmes, are required to submit annual reports, in a specified standard format, commenting on the programme and the examination process.
University Coordinators, in consultation with the collaborative organisation, are required to submit an annual programme review for each collaborative programme to the School Education Committee to be considered at the same time as the University’s internal annual programme reviews.
A sub-group of the Collaborative Provision Group (CPG) will review the annual programme reviews for each collaborative programme and a summary of issues will be considered at the February meeting of the CPG. The CPG will report to Education Committee. Feedback on outcomes arising from the annual programme review process will be provided to Schools for action and/or dissemination to the collaborative partner, as appropriate.
