Become an assessor
Would you like to contribute to your community? Are you interested in contributing to upholding standards in chemistry higher education? We are currently recruiting for accreditation assessors.
If you are a lecturer based at a university which has RSC-accredited degree programmes and have supported at least one complete cohort from registration to graduation through an accredited degree, are a Royal Society of Chemistry member (MRSC or above), you can become an assessor. Experience of working on an accreditation application is desirable, but not essential.
Typically, each assessor reviews three applications per year, although there could be more than this if you are interested in overseas accreditation. Assessors normally undertake a maximum of two site visits per year.
Please note departments can have no more than one assessor at any one time.
