Information on the grounds eligible for making an appeal are set out in Regulation 42.
Where can I access support in relation to submitting an appeal?
What happens after I submit an appeal?
If your appeal is not eligible you will be contacted to explain why your appeal cannot be considered.
If your appeal is eligible, you will be contacted to confirm receipt of your appeal and explain the appeals process. If your appeal is eligible, it may be sent to your academic department for its response. The department’s response will be sent to you for consideration and any further comments you may wish to make.
All paperwork relating to your appeal will then be considered by an Appeal Review Panel (ARP) , which is constituted of academic members of staff as outlined in Regulation 42, which will determine whether or not you have established grounds for appeal. If the ARP determines you have established grounds for appeal, it will refer your appeal to the relevant examiners.
In certain circumstances your appeal may be referred to a meeting of a Graduate Appeals Committee (GAC).
Regulation 42 outlines the procedure of the Academic Review Panel and Graduate Appeals Committee.
