How long do I have to appeal?
Students have 10 university working days from the date of their conferral letter or notification from the Board of Examiners. Completed forms and supporting documents and evidence should be emailed to pgappeals at warwick dot ac dot uk.
If students are out of time they can still submit their appeal but must send a covering letter or email outlining the reasons their appeal is late. The Preliminary Review Panel will review the appeal and decide if it can be accepted, firstly considering whether they will accept it out of time.
All information on what the appeals procedure can and cannot be used for can be found via:
If Helen or Ellie are not available ask student to email the pgappeals at warwick dot ac dot uk">pgappeals account with their query.

There is a strong expectation of engagement with Professional Development Training, especially if you are a Research Council funded student.
However there is no consequence to your PhD from Warwick if you don't complete the ten days (or pro-rata for part time PGRs) each year. It is a supporting framework so you can engage with your professional development and skills fairly and equitably. More information can be found on our PD FAQs.
If you are Research Council funded student we advise checking with your funding body in the first instance.
- a Postgraduate Taught (PGT) student - this normally includes 1+3
- or Postdoctoral Fellow (member of staff).
If you are a PGR and are still experiencing problems, please contact pgrdevelopment at warwick dot ac dot uk.
