Academic Appeal Procedure

Please refer to the Student Handbook - Section 16 - Academic Appeal Procedure.

Students can only appeal after the formal publication of results, which normally takes place at the end of the year of study.  This is because all marks are provisional until confirmed by the Progression & Award Board.

Students wishing to appeal against the decisions made by the Progression & Award Board, must consult the current Student Handbook for details of the University’s appeals process and, in particular, the grounds under which an appeal can be lodged.

Students wishing to appeal must lodge their intention to appeal against board decision and are required to:

1.   Request an appeal form by emailing  Norman Jope, Academic Standards Officer  by no later than the date specified in the Results & Appeals dates table.

2.  Completed appeal forms must be received to the Academic Standards Officer along with all the relevant supporting documentation, within two weeks (ten working days) of that date.

Any appeals received after that point will normally be disregarded. Please note that all appeals must be lodged on the appropriate form in order to be valid.

Students can get advice and guidance at any time from University Student Support situated in the ground floor of HDC Building and the University Student Union.
