External Examiners

External Examiners

The University’s Regulations concerning external examiners are part of the Regulations concerning Boards of Examiners. Further details on these Regulations, as well as on the composition of Boards of Examiners, and the procedures for meetings of Boards of Examiners, can be found in the Boards of Examiners section of the Code of Practice on Examinations and Assessment.

This section of the Code of Practice is intended primarily for the benefit of individuals appointed to a position as an External Examiner at Queen’s.  External examiners may also find information of use in other sections of this Code of Practice, especially the sections on Boards of Examiners and Mark Schemes and Classifications.

This section of the Code of Practice will also be of benefit to Queen’s staff seeking information as to the University’s expectations regarding the role and remit of external examiners.
