Appeals against academic decisions

You have the right to appeal, in appropriate circumstances, against a decision of a Board of Examiners or a Faculty Board or a Campus Progress and Award Board. An appeal must be based either:

  • on evidence of extenuating circumstances relevant to your progress which in your view was not in the possession of the Board of Examiners when it made its decision (SA1 appeal)
  • on a procedural or other irregularity associated with the decision (SA2 appeal).

The completed form and all supporting evidence must be submitted by the date published on the portal – My Studies tab, Examinations and Assessment channel.

An explanatory leaflet on appeals procedures can be obtained from the student portal – My Studies tab, Examinations and Assessment channel and should be read before completion of the relevant form.
