UG Handbook - External Examiners

Universities use external examiners to validate the standard of assessment and advise on the content of degree courses. The external examiners inspect samples of work and participate in key assessment meetings. They send reports on assessment procedures and any commendable (or less commendable) features of the course that are taken very seriously by the University.

The Department of Psychology has two external examiners:

  • Dr Lisa Evans, University of Cardiff
  • Dr Lucy Cragg, University of Nottingham

It is inappropriate to make direct contact with external examiners. If you have any issues or concerns you can register these through appeal or complaint.

To contact the Student Documentation maintainers please email (use your University of York email address).
