You can submit an appeal if you want the University to review a decision they’ve made about your studies. You have 15 working days(i.e. not weekends or bank holidays) from the date on the official notification letter to appeal. You can appeal against:
The University won’t investigate an appeal against an academic judgment or a request for work to be remarked. If you need more time to obtain evidence, submit your appeal by the deadline and indicate when further evidence will follow, and why you cannot yet provide it. The appeals team does not normally allow extensions for the submission of appeals.
Late appeals past the 15-day deadline are unlikely to be considered.
Regardless of which decision you are appealing against, there are set grounds for appealing. These differ depending on the type of appeal but if your appeal is not based on one of the eligible grounds it either will not be considered or another process may be more appropriate. Below you will find the different grounds based on the different decisions you can appeal.
You can read more about the appeals process and access the appeals form on the Student Intranet.
Below you can find ‘how to’ sheets for the different decisions you can appeal.
