External Examiner – MSc / BSc Health Sciences Open Awards

Opening Date:
19 Oct 2017
Closing Date:
16 Nov 2017
Salary Range:

We are seeking to appoint an external examiner for the MSc Health Sciences Open Award and the BSc Health Sciences Open Award Top-up programmes within the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, Oxford Brookes University.

Both awards are accessed by health and social care professionals seeking continuing professional development. The BSc top-up allows students with an existing DipHE to attain a degree, and the MSc provides for individually negotiated programmes of study and award titles. Students access modules across the Faculty, some of which are moderated by other external examiners.

While experience of open / negotiated awards would be desirable, the role can be carried out by academics with general knowledge of professional health & social care education and quality assurance.

The appointment is with immediate effect for a term of four years. External Examiners are required to moderate assessments, attend examination committees, and to complete an annual report. External Examiners are also requested to provide comments on proposed modifications to modules and the development of new modules, within their area of expertise.

If you would like further information relating to the programmes, please do not hesitate to contact Dr Jan Davison-Fischer, Programme Lead, by emailing j.fischer@brookes.ac.uk
