Collaborative centres have the responsibility for managing the assessment process for UW validated schemes, overseen by the University of Wales.
Assessments are developed by staff at the collaborative centre but must be approved by the University of Wales appointed external examiners. The assessments are mapped against the learning outcomes of the module, as approved by the University.
University of Wales representatives, including the external examiners, attend the examining board at which all marks and degree outcomes are ratified and ensure that the process is conducted in accordance with UW regulations.
For further information and guidance, please refer to the University’s Assessment Handbook.
