External Examiners Payment Dates


Due to the current Covid-19 situation we are facing in the UK, the University will only accept payment and expenses forms that are submitted digitally to Payments and reimbursement of expenses (within 3 months of receipt) will still be processed but may take a little longer due to remote working. Payment and expenses claim forms can be found on the Fees and Expenses page.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Additional Information

Please note, the above dates do not relate to the deadline for your External Examiner Annual Report. They are provided here as a guideline for when you can expect payment, during our next payment window, following submission of your report.

Payment requests being sent to Payroll/Finance will be dependent upon all details and documentation, such as Right to Work, VAM forms (UG and PGCE only) and bank details being in place. If any of these details/documents are missing, this will delay payment.

Payment of External Examiner fees cannot be made if your External Examiner Annual Report report has not yet been submitted.
