Can I appeal a decision made by an Academic Conduct Panel or Cheating Allegation Panel?

You have the right to appeal any decision reached by an Academic Conduct Panel or Cheating Allegation Panel, and request that the decision be reviewed.

How to do this is explained to you in your outcome letter. Appeals must be submitted on an AA1 form with any relevant supporting evidence within 10 working days of receiving the Panel decision.

Appeals can only be submitted on the following grounds:

  • There has been an irregularity in the application of the published regulation, policy or procedure which has had an impact on the decision.
  • There is relevant new evidence or information that you did not provide and you have a valid reason why you did not submit it at the time.

Further information regarding appeals can be found in the Appeals Policy and Procedure.

You are able to access free, independent and confidential advice and support regarding appeals from the Students' Union Advice Centre.
