External Examiners & Annual Report
NCAD appoints External Examiners with international expertise in their field, as moderators of the assessment process, to review suites of modules related to subject areas either within or across Schools. Within each programme, the External Examiner reviews the academic standards, curriculum development, assessment and grading strategies and practices of the programme.
