Welcome to the Robert Gordon University.

Welcome to the Robert Gordon University and thank you for agreeing to act as an External Examiner.

The appointment of External Examiners is one of the most important features of the University’s system of quality assurance. The function of the External Examiner is crucial to all aspects of the assessment process and your presence ensures the objectivity of an Assessment Board, comparability of awards and standards in the national context, and the fair and equitable treatment of students.

We very much value your input and hope that you will enjoy your time with us.

Professor J Harper,
Deputy Principal and Chief Academic Officer
