What is an Academic Concern Meeting?

An Academic Concern Meeting is held to discuss concerns over an item of coursework. The purpose of the meeting is to establish whether you could benefit from any additional academic guidance or support.

You will be invited to attend an Academic Concern meeting, which will usually be with your Course Leader. It is important that you attend the meeting as this is your opportunity to explain what has happened and receive the support that you need to ensure this does not happen again.

Possible outcomes from this meeting include:

  • the Course Leader decides that no further action is required
  • the Course Leader decides that this is a matter of poor academic practice and issues a Notice to Improve
  • the Course Leader decides that the matter is more serious than initially thought and refers your case to an Academic Conduct Panel
