Appeals procedure

We're committed to providing a mechanism for students to appeal decisions which impact on their progression, assessment and degree outcomes.

We do this in order to protect the academic integrity of awards made by the University and ensure fair and consistent outcomes for students.

The purpose of this procedure is to provide a formal means through which students can request a review of assessment, mitigating circumstances or academic misconduct penalty decisions.
