Do External Examiners need a Leeds IT account/username?

General Questions

Quality Assurance have advised that all external examiners must have a Leeds IT account created before they can be given access to submissions and any other University systems (e.g. Minerva). Please direct external examiners to request a Leeds IT account by applying for a University of Leeds username:

The form asks users to choose a category when applying for a username, and states that external examiners should use the category:

  • Visitor/Contractor

For more information on this policy see, reference 3.1.3 and 3.1.4 in the External Examiner Handbook (PDF). As part of the onboarding process, external examiner's with a Leeds username also receive training and relevant guidance.
