Academic Appeals

An academic appeal differs from a complaint and therefore appeals and complaints are considered under different procedures.

A complaint is defined as a formal expression of dissatisfaction made by either a single student or a group of students about the provision of their programme of study or related academic service or facility or any other service provided by the College and therefore the Appeals Procedure cannot be used to bring complaints.

The purpose of this procedure is to establish the facts and come to a reasonable and just resolution, which is both relevant and proportionate.
