Identity of Examiners
Examiners have the right to remain anonymous and whilst it is acceptable for a candidate to be aware of the names of the pool of examiners under consideration, candidates will not be advised of the names of those examiners finally recommended by the relevant School or appointed by the University.
If the identity of appointed examiners is revealed to the candidate (except following the examination process with their consent) the examination will be invalidated. In such circumstances, new examiners must be appointed and consequently, the examination process will be significantly delayed.
Note however that supervisors may discuss the names of potential examiners with a candidate at the time "notice of intention to submit" is provided.
