Coronavirus Recovery: advice and latest information

FOR ALL TAUGHT AND RESEARCH PROGRAMMES OF STUDY

Academic Appeals Procedure

This procedure is not meant to be used to consider student complaints. Students are directed to the University’s Complaints Procedures. Candidates wishing to request a check on individual marks are referred to the Accuracy of Published Marks Procedure.

These procedures are relevant to students wishing to appeal against a decision taken by an Examination Board.

If you feel you are eligible, have grounds for appeal and are within time then you will need to complete the Appeal Form

Completed request for appeal forms need to be submitted with all relevant supporting evidence by e-mail to studentcases@swansea.ac.uk.

As staff are currently working remotely, we cannot accept appeal forms or any documents/correspondence by post.

Students are also advised to read the revised Academic Appeals FAQ which provide more information about key deadlines for submitting appeals and about how appeals will be determined.  

Should you have any questions on the procedure or regulations, please contact the Student Cases Team, who will be happy to answer any queries you might have, via email at: studentcases@swansea.ac.uk.  

In addition, the Student’s Union Advice Centre is available to assist and advise students, in confidence, regarding Appeals and operates as a free service for students. You can contact the Advice Centre via e-mail at: advice@swansea-union.co.uk.

Special consideration dates

Whilst students have three months to submit an appeal following publication of the August supplementary assessment results on the intranet, if you are an MBBCh student and wish to submit an appeal related to the continuation of your studies (for example if you have been withdrawn from the University and wish to appeal to be permitted the opportunity to repeat the level of study) during the 21/22 Academic Session you will need to submit your appeal to Academic Services by the dates set out below:
