The External Examiners Database is a record of individuals and their expertise, which is then used by heads of department to find external examiners for their courses.
If you are an external examiner, or someone who is looking to become one, the Database enables you to make your name available to universities. Providing brief information assists in the matching of skills and experience, and is likely to facilitate the appointment process.
If you are a head of department, the Database provides a list of potential external examiners who may be suitable for your course. There is an opportunity for you to plan ahead and arrange for the appointment of new external examiners well before your existing contracts expire. It will also help you to match the academic expertise with your needs.
There are also instructions to update details for those already registered on the Database.
The Royal Society of Biology makes no claims about the individuals listed. This Database is designed to facilitate contact between potential external examiners and programme leaders with the full expectation that the leaders will use their institution's guidelines and procedures to ascertain whether a particular individual is suitable, or not, to take on the role.Forgotten password
