Fees & Expenses

The Examinations Office is responsible for the processing of forms relating to fees and expenses incurred by External Examiners.

The process for payment of Fees and Expenses to Undergraduate/Postgraduate Taught External Examiner's is as follows.

  • The School will contact the External Examiner directly to complete the Right to Work checks and record the Examiners payment information. 
  • The School will input the External Examiners payment details into an MS Form which will add them to the payment system and generate a unique ID number. 
  • The School will send a copy of the UG/PGT External Examiners claim form to the Examiner each year. This will be completed by the Examiner providing the module details and any expenses that need to be reimbursed. The form along with any receipts will be returned to the School contact for School approval. 
  • The completed form signed off by the authorised signatory will be sent to Examinations office to calculate the fee and process the payment. 

The FAQs below will go into the payment process in more detail, including the fees and expense allowances.
