Due to unforeseen circumstance New College Durham is seeking to appoint a new External Examiner for our BA (Hons) Visual Arts (Top-up) programme which is validated by the Open University.
The examiner is required as soon as possible, the role beginning with the external moderation of semester 2 modules in preparation for the June 2020 exam board and completion of the 2019-20 External Examiner report.
BA (Hons) Visual Arts (Top-up) provides opportunity for students to pursue negotiated creative outcomes within a chosen specialism, as determined by the student. As such, the examiner will require a broad awareness of art and design and ideally previous experience teaching across a range of disciplines within the remit of art and design.
New College Durham is a large mixed-economy institution, delivering HE courses to over 1,000 full time equivalent students offering courses and programmes of study across a wide range of vocational areas up to Level 7.
This programme is one of a range of programmes validated by the Open University and as such External Examiners are nominated by the College but approved and appointed by the Open University.
