Examinations and assessment framework (EAF)

The Examinations and assessment framework (EAF) has replaced the former Policy and Guidance for Examiners from 2019-20.

The EAF details the University's policy relating to University Examinations and assessment practices for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses. It aligns with and expands on the Examination Regulations. It also provides more detailed guidance in relation to specific processes, primarily through annexes. It is of relevance for examiners and all other staff involved in University Examinations and assessment.

Operational guidance and policy is provided through the Examination and Assessments staff website

A PDF version of the full policy and guidance (including all annexes) is available below:
