An external examiner participates in the evaluation of all the candidates' examination papers.

There is emphasis on finding an examiner who is willing to act as a participant in the quality assurance process. The same examiner is used for several years, so that a comparison over time is possible. The examiner is systematically and thoroughly informed about the aims, contents, arrangement and conduction of the course. Finally, a discussion is held between the examiner, the teachers and each student who submitted their paper  for examination.
