If you wish to appeal against a decision of a Degree or Progression Board, there are separate procedures to follow.
These are outlined in the guidance on Academic Appeals:
If, having consulted this guide, you think you have grounds for appealing against an academic decision please contact your Faculty or Departmental Office to seek advice from a Senior Academic Adviser. If the Adviser cannot resolve the matter informally, and you wish to proceed with an appeal, you will need to email a completed Intention to Appeal Form to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than the earlier of (a) 10 working days after the publication of the Board’s decision or (b) 5 working days before the conferment of the award.
Forms are also available for collection at the Gateway Building reception desk and must be submitted electronically with supportive evidence to email@example.com.
Once you have submitted an ‘intention of appeal form’ along with supportive evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org, your appeal case may go through a two stage process (please also refer to the ?);
1) Referred to the Faculty Senior Academic Advisor Appeal Panel,
2) If the Panel establishes a 'Prima Facie case' then your case is referred to a formal 'Academic Appeal Committee' hearing.
You should also take advice from the Students’ Union. Contact details are below:
