This will allow the University to maintain an up to date record of External Examiner appointments and will incorporate the facility for External Examiners to submit their reports online, allow Departments to view and comment on these reports and External Examiners to see the departmental replies.

As part of this implementation process, External Examiners are asked to submit their reports electronically via the SITS: eVision system
