Concerned about your referral or deferral results?

Find out more about how you may want to appeal your results...

For many students who’ve completed referral or deferral assessments this summer, results are due to be released on Monday 7 September. We wish the best of luck to everyone getting their results and hope you’ll be able celebrate the outcome of all your hard work.

For some students, these results might not such good news. If you have concerns with your results and feel that you have a reason to challenge them, you have the right to make an academic appeal. Students wanting to make an academic appeal have ten working days to do this from the release of results, so if you receive results on Monday 7 September, your appeal deadline will be 11.59pm on Monday 21 September.

Our advice service is closed for a week from Monday 7 September, but the team have written a series of online appeal FAQs, which you can access here. If you’re considering an academic appeal, please read those FAQs in detail. We’d recommend that once you’ve read them, you do your best to draft an appeal using the Formal Appeal Form. If you send this to, including your appeal evidence, our advice team will get back to you with feedback and advice on your draft appeal, as soon as they can after they return on Monday 14 September. You can also send us any questions you have and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can upon our return.

We appreciate that getting results can be a tough time and we’d encourage anyone who’s struggling with the news they’ve received, to reach out for help and support from the University. Details of the University’s wellbeing services can be found here, and you can find contact details for your college’s Welfare Adviser on this page.

Good luck everyone, and take care
