Unhappy with a result of an exam, coursework or your degree? You have a right of appeal against academic decisions and recommendations made by your College that affect your academic progress.

You have the right to appeal against academic decisions and recommendations such as formal assessment results, degree classification or a decision consequential to an academic failure, however appeals cannot be made against the academic judgment of either an internal or external examiner of the University. You can, however, appeal if you believe that this judgment was not made fairly or according to the correct University process.

It is important that you read and follow the Universities procedure for making a complaint and that you are aware of these when making an appeal. Appeals will be considered on the following grounds. Please ensure that your appeal meets at least one of these criteria.

Appeals must be completed on the correct, within 10 working days and where appropriate have the relevant evidence to support the claim.

Full regulations from the TQA can be found here and we strongly recommend that you look at this before making an appeal.
