Students have the right to appeal against any decision of the Board of Examiners. An appeal can be submitted on one or more of the following grounds:
a. Personal mitigating circumstances where, for good reason, the Board of Examiners was not made aware of a significant factor relating to the assessment of a student through the Personal Mitigating Circumstances Procedure when it made its original decision;
b. there has been a procedural irregularity in the assessment process;
c. the Board of Examiners/Postgraduate Research Award Board has acted in a way which is manifestly unreasonable. In this context, unreasonable shall be taken to mean perverse, i.e. the decision was not a possible conclusion that a similar meeting of the Board of Examiners/Postgraduate Research Award Board might have reached.
If you wish to lodge an appeal, you must do so by completing and submitting the Stage 1 Academic Appeals Form with any evidence , no later than 14 days after the publication of your results, to the Quality and Enhancement Office, University of Salford, M5 4WT or via email@example.com
Please note that being dissatisfied with your results does not constitute grounds for an appeal. Independent advice on this process can be sought via the Students’ Union. Advicecentrefirstname.lastname@example.org
