Who to contact if you have a query about your result or need to talk to someone
When your course results and awards are released, if you have a concern or a query about your result, or if your result is significantly different than what you expected, please contact your Student Adviser, your Programme Director, or the Postgraduate School office where someone will be available to talk to you, and arrange a meeting with you if that would be helpful.
Staff will be available Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm (BST).

You will receive an automated email from the Student Administration team once the registration for graduation opens. The University's winter graduation ceremonies will be held from Thursday 24th November - Monday 5th December; the date for the School of Economics will be confirmed in September. Further information on the winter ceremonies will be available on the Graduation website closer to this time.
The University's Taught Assessment Regulations govern how postgraduate taught courses and programmes are assessed.
These Regulations also include links to the University’s Common Marking Scheme which is applied for all the School’s assessed work, including examinations.
The University has in place a process for an Academic Appeal, following the release of results. An Appeal is a request for a decision made by a Board of Examiners relating to marks, progression, degree classification and/or degree award to be reconsidered.
It is important to note that the appeal process cannot be used to challenge academic judgement. That is, you cannot submit an appeal simply because you believe that you deserve a better mark. There are specific grounds under which an Academic Appeal may be submitted. These are set out in the relevant university Academic Appeal Regulations.
If you are considering lodging an appeal, it is important that you act promptly.
Information on the University’s Academic Appeals processes is at:
The School strongly recommends that if you are considering submitting an Academic Appeal you should first study the guidance on the Appeals webpages contact the EUSA Advice Place, where trained advisers can offer guidance and support.
