The College of Radiographers recognises that it can be difficult to identify appropriately qualified individuals to act in the capacity of external examiners. This is because there is a lack of ready information regarding who is available and qualified to undertake the role. Accordingly, the College of Radiographers (CoR) has established a Register of individuals for appointment as external examiners.
The aim of the Register is to assist Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and other education providers to identify suitable external examiners; and also to enable appropriately qualified individuals wishing to undertake external examining duties to put themselves forward for consideration.
The Register provides names of suitably qualified individuals to act as external examiners for CoR approved and/or accredited programmes or courses at pre-and post-registration levels. It will also provide a source of potential examiners for doctoral level studies and programmes undertaken by radiographers.
Education providers requiring to appoint or replace an external examiner should complete the CoR proforma which includes reference to the course in question and any caveats associated with the course or prior institutions from which external examiners may not be selected.
The CoR will provide three names of people on the Register, together with contact details. The process for selecting these individuals will be based upon a cyclical system. This will permit less experienced external examiners to be selected, thus avoiding continually utilising more experienced ones without allowing for the growth of new talent.
Please see the document below which discusses the process.
Individuals interested in being placed on the College of Radiographers Register of External Examiners, are invited to submit an application which can be found below.
