Who can Apply for an Academic Appeals?
Course participants have the right to appeal if:

There have being identified instances ​of procedural irregularity, meaning that, course participants can substantiate with evidence, that procedures where by-passed or breached, thus putting the course participants at a disadvantage.

Course participants can substantiate, with evidence that there has been a prejudice or bias on a personal level. 


Can I appeal if I believe that I deserve a better mark/classification?

No, mark dissatisfaction, is not a ground for appeals unless procedural irregularity or prejudice or bias can be proved.


Can I apply for an appeal if I disagree with the feedback and mark given in the assessment?

This falls within the criteria of Academic Judgement, and it is not a ground for appeals. The Appeals Committee, does not have the remit to re-assess a task nor does it delve into content of academic tasks.


Can I apply for an appeal if, I am awaiting a resit / re-attempt?

No, you cannot lodge an appeal until the official mark of the resit is published.


Can I apply for an appeal I am awaiting results from a revision of paper?

No, results from a revision of paper cannot be appealed against as the process itself entails that the assessment is blind-marked by an external examiner.
