Appeals

Academic appeals

You are entitled to appeal against your module marks, exam results or final award if you feel there are sufficient grounds.

You must be able to demonstrate that either there has been a procedural error or that there is new evidence concerning mitigating circumstances that was not made available to the examiners and that could not have been produced at an earlier stage.

Appeals will not be considered against the academic judgement of the examiners or in respect of the quality of teaching or supervision prior to the examination, unless the student could not reasonably have been expected to have made this a subject of a complaint before the examination.

An appeal must be submitted within 15 days of the publication of your results.

Full guidance on the grounds for academic appeal and the process may be found here.

Disciplinary appeals

An appeal may also be brought if you do not accept departmental action taken against you in the case of unfair means. In this case, an appeal must be submitted within 15 days of the notification of the decision relating to your use of unfair means.

Full guidance on the grounds for disciplinary appeal and the process may be found here.

If you are considering appealing, you are strongly advised to contact the Student Advice Centre in the Students' Union.
