3.12 Internal Reviewer

1. Internal reviewers are appointed by Institutes to attend examination boards at departmental / institute level.

2. The Internal Reviewer is not a member of the examination board, and should not be an internal examiner for the examination board in question. Institutes may therefore need to appoint more than one reviewer to enable attendance at all boards. Where it is not possible for the Institute to provide an internal reviewer for a particular board, the role may be fulfilled by a reviewer from another institute, or by staff from the Academic Quality and Records Office.

2. Internal reviewers should attend all meetings of examination boards where external examiners are expected to be present, and should also attend the semester one meetings of Part Two and Postgraduate Taught boards.

3. Internal reviewers are not expected to comment on individual cases during meetings of examination boards. Their role is to observe the board’s application of university regulations and the guidance provided in the Academic Quality Handbook. They may also draw attention to and share good practice within the Institute.
