Guidance on Examination Boards

The meeting of an Examination Board to agree degree awards is an important occasion. For students it represents the culmination of their period of study that is important for their future. For staff it represents the output from their teaching and support of the students and their learning. For the University it represents the opportunity to verify that academic standards are appropriate in the relevant subject, with the help of External Examiners.

This document details the principles and guidance that help to recognise the importance of the occasion and extract the maximum benefit from it efficiently. 

The Guidance was last updated in March 2022 to include the fact that Boards can now take place online or in person.
