You can submit an appeal if you want the College to review a decision they’ve made about your studies. You have 15 working days from the date on the official notification letter to appeal. You can appeal against:
The College won’t investigate an appeal against academic judgement or a request for work to be remarked.
We can help you with your appeal, how to fill in your form, the type of evidence you need to submit and provide you with general support. Please remember that submitting an appeal doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get the outcome you want.
More information about appeals can be found on this webpage. There is also the hyperlink to the appeals form on the webpage. You email your form to firstname.lastname@example.org and can attach your evidence in the same email as well.
Once you’ve submitted your appeal, you’ll receive an email confirmation that your appeal has been received within five working days. The College aims to get an outcome out to you within two months of you submitting your appeal. But, during busy times of year it might take longer when there is a higher volume of appeals.
If after this process you still feel there is an injustice then you can speak to us about the Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA).
The OIA is an independent body which reviews student complaints. The College will issue a Completion of Procedures letter once a decision is made on your appeal. Your appeal won’t be investigated any further by the College. If the outcome isn’t what you had hoped for then you can ask the OIA to review your case. You have 12 months from the date on the Completion of Procedures letter to request the OIA to review your case.
