An academic appeal allows you, in certain circumstances, to ask for a review of a decision relating to your academic progress or award.
All taught and research students are entitled to submit an appeal if you have suitable grounds.
Those grounds are:
- There is evidence that a Student Progress Panel did not reach a decision in accordance with the Academic Regulations.
- There is evidence that there was an error in recording or reporting results, or the award decision of a Student Progress Panel
- There is evidence of factor’s affecting your performance that could not reasonably have been submitted earlier.
Our advisor can:
- Offer you guidance on the appeals process
- Give you guidance on the appeals form and statement
- Advise on additional evidence
- Accompany you to meetings and hearings
For more detailed information read our Academic Appeals Guide
The University’s website offers information about their appeals process.
