Welcome to the University of Salford's resources for External Examiners.
Our External Examiners play a crucial role in helping us to assure the appropriateness of the standards of our awards, the quality of assessment opportunities afforded to students and the soundness and fairness of our assessment processes. We also welcome your independent and insightful perspective on the standard of our students' performance compared with those on similar programmes in other UK universities. Your role contributes to the academic integrity of our institution.
We value your contribution in assuring the quality of vital elements of our students' experience, enabling us to ensure that high quality teaching, learning and assessment are developed and maintained.
We aim to establish clear and effective dialogue with External Examiners, to provide you with all necessary information, and to draw on your informed view to enhance assessment for our students. These resources form part of this dialogue. Here you will find information about the External Examiner system at Salford, but perhaps more importantly, you will also find the names and contact details of colleagues whom you can approach directly should you need help.
On behalf of the University, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for acting as an External Examiner for the University of Salford. My colleagues and I look forward to working with you and we hope that you will find these resources useful.
