Academic Appeal Policy

An academic appeal is a procedure, which allows a student to ask for a review of a decision relating to course or certificate. To be eligible to submit an appeal the student must have eligible grounds as per the appeal procedure. Academic appeals may consider allegations of procedural irregularity in the marking of assessments; but the decisions of the Board of Academics in all matters relating to academic judgement shall be final. There is no right of appeal against the academic judgement of the Board of Academics. Disagreement with the academic judgement of the Board of Academics in assessing the merits of an individual piece of work or in reaching a decision on a student’s progress or on the final level of an award, based on the marks, grades and other information relating to the student’s performance, cannot in itself constitute grounds for an appeal.

The following are not grounds for appeal:
1. The student is not happy with the grade being given.
2. S/he thought would, or should, have achieved a better grade.
