Please refer to the below 'Appeals guidance for Summer 2020 (COVID-19)' as a document detailing the the University’s approach to handling appeals in the period between June 2020 and October 2020.

Please note: In light of the current circumstances with COVID-19, the team are currently unable to access the post room. Therefore, appeals submitted by post cannot be accepted and all appeals must be submitted electronically only. If you have any queries or concerns regarding this, please contact the team at

Students have the right to appeal against the outcome of the decision of the Awards Assessment Board.

There are restricted grounds for appeal, and strict deadlines for the submission of the appeal forms.

Marks can only be awarded for actual achievement, therefore a successful appeal cannot directly result in the increase of any intrinsic mark, no matter what the mitigating circumstances of the student.

If a student is not satisfied with the appeal outcome, under certain circumstances, a complaint can be made to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education(OIA).
