We want your experience at Solent to be a good one, but sometimes you may feel that the services we provide don't meet your expectations.
It's important that you do raise any issues with the University. We may not always be aware of the problems, and your feedback helps us to maintain the standard of experience we would want for our students.
"A complaint must be made in a timely manner and usually within one month of the incident/event"
The student complaints procedure provides students with a means to complain about the services provided by the University whether that is problems with accommodation, fees, facilities or the standard of teaching. The student complaint policy applies to current students or those who have completed their course in the last three months.
Please note that this procedure doesn't cover problems with marks, results and examinations, for which a separate appeals procedure exists.
We would encourage students to first try and resolve issues informally as in most cases this is the quickest and most effective way to resolve a problem. There are a number of people you can speak to about your issues and you can find contact details below.
If you have been unable to resolve the issues informally you can submit a formal complaint. You should never be concerned about making a complaint. The University will always ensure that any complaint is:
