Academic appeals

Requesting for your result to be reconsidered

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 judgment. 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, and adhere to the timescale set by academic services.
