UUK/GuildHE Review of External Examining

This presentation details the investigation GuildHE and Universities UK (UUK) carried out into external examining following the increased media and political scrutiny of external examiners following the Select Committee into Higher Education raised concerns about the system in 2009. The investigation aimed to consider and recommend what improvements need to be made to ensure that external examiner arrangements effectively support the comparability of academic standards and are robust enough to meet future challenges.

This presentation was delivered at the What Needs To Be Done? The External Examiner System and HE Performing Arts Subjects Meeting held on 1 July 2010 at the Birmingham Conservatoire between a group of senior academics/external examiners in HE dance drama and music and representatives of the Higher Education Academy QAA and UUK.
