You may have received an academic outcome that you feel needs to be reconsidered. The Appeals process is available for this reason. 

The types of decisions you can appeal include

  • Being removed from your course (termination) 
  • A mitigating circumstances application outcome
  • The result of a specific assessment

If you would like some guidance on how to appeal an Academic Misconduct allegation, please see our dedicated pages for this procedure here.


Grounds for appeal

In order to appeal, you would need to put forward a case using one of the following two grounds: 

  1. Evidence of new mitigating circumstances, with credible and compelling reasons for why you were unable to disclose the information to your School prior to the decision being made

  2. Procedural defect or error on the University’s part, i.e., they did not act in accordance with the relevant Academic Regulations and/ or Procedures

If you are unsure if you have grounds for appeal, please feel free to get in touch and one of our advisors will confirm this for you.

  • If you think both grounds fit your case, you can explain this in your appeal.

Students should ensure that the decision and section under which they are appealing correspond. One of our advisors can check this for you.

Please note, appeals made against an academic or professional judgement will not be considered. This relates to a decision made by an academic staff member/examiner on the quality of an assessment or the criteria applied to mark the assessment.


If you’re unsure, please contact us for further guidance.
