University of Essex departments
University of Essex departments use the External Examiner Nomination Portal
Restricted to University of Essex staff, the External Examiner Nomination Portal is used by departmental staff for nominating a new, or replacement, External Examiner, and for making changes to existing appointments. The system is an enhancement of the University's existing personnel management system iTrent, and will record details of External Examiner nominations, course/module allocations and stages in the nomination approval process.

Partner institutions use the External Examiner nomination form (.docx)
Currently, nominations for External Examiners for partner institutions should be made using a nomination form sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to include
All nominations will need to include:
- An up to date CV
- Copy of a document confirming Right to Work (usually a UK/EEA passport) in line with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 (Prevention of Illegal Working regulations)
- which has been verified by their home institution or employer
- dated by the home institution
- Stamped with departmental or institutional stamp
Please note, if this is not available, a document from List A or List B of the Home Office Right to Work checklist is acceptable. If the External Examiner is a non-UK/EEA national and cannot supply any of the required documentation, please seek advice from us via email@example.com.
It will not be possible to accept or process any new recommendations without this information.
