An External Examiner is required for the BSc (Hons) Health Studies at Plymouth University.

We need the external to be able to review the variety of Mentorship modules.

  • Currently four assessment panels a year (March, June, September, November) and the submission of external examiner reports
  • To review a range of coursework throughout the year
  • To attend one assessment event per year if appropriate (for example, OSCE or oral presentation)
  • To engage in communication with the programme team
  • To carry out at least one interim engagement per year (which may take the form of a ‘virtual’ visit by video conference/Skype in recognition of the logistical difficulties presented by Plymouth’s geographical location) and at least one face to face visit during the term of office to obtain feedback from staff and to strengthen their engagement with the ongoing teaching and learning process
