A discussion paper and consultation on the UK external examining system has been launched by Universities UK and GuildHE, in collaboration with the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).
The review is being conducted in response to a recommendation from HEFCE arising from the HEFCE Teaching Quality and Student Experience (TQSE) sub-committee report on HEFCE's statutory responsiblity for quality assurance (HEFCE 2009/40) and as part of a wider commitment to ensure that quality arrangements are continually reviewed and developed.
The paper and information on the consultation may be found here.
