Universities use external examiners to validate the standard of assessment and advise on the content of degree courses. The external examiners inspect samples of work and participate in key assessment meetings. They send reports on assessment procedures and any commendable (or less commendable) features of the course that are taken very seriously by the University.
The Department of Psychology has two external examiners:
- Professor Charles Leek, Bangor University
- To Be Confirmed
It is inappropriate to make direct contact with external examiners, in particular regarding your performance in assessments. If you have any issues or concerns you should pursue these with the Department and then if necessary register them through appeal or complaint to the University.
