When you receive your assessment results you may not always feel the decision is correct. You can appeal this and in certain circumstances ask that the decision is looked at. We have a two stage procedure, stage 1 being the Academic Appeal. If you're dissatisfied with the stage 1 response, you can submit an Appeal Review request at stage 2.
Further details about making an appeal please see our appeals page

Under the Higher Education Act 2004 the University subscribes to the independent scheme for the review of student complaints.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of an appeal, complaint or disciplinary you may be able to apply for a review of this to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education (OIA) providing that the complaint you take to the OIA is eligible under its Rules. You must have competed the University's internal procedures prior to taking any complaint to the OIA.
The OIA publishes Annual Statements setting out the complaints record of all providers within the OIA Scheme. The University's can be accessed here.
