Academic Appeals

You should use this procedure to appeal the decision of an Assessment Board where you feel there has been a material procedural defect or irregularity which is relevant to the outcome of the academic decision. You can only submit an appeal once you have formally received your results. Appeals must be submitted within 10 working days of the formal publication of results.

Within this section you will find further information, the regulations and all the relevant forms you will need to complete should you wish to submit an appeal.
