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 Request for Appeal form (Form AR1RD-1 BI). The form is available from Academic Services (My UniHub) or from the ‘Forms and Documents’ section of Academic Services’ MyStudies site

Completed request for appeal forms need to be submitted, with all relevant supporting evidence, by post to the Academic Appeals Section, Academic Services, Swansea University, Singleton Park, Swansea, SA2 8PP or by e-mail to myunihub.

Should you have any questions on the procedure or regulations, please contact the MyUniHub team, who will be happy to answer any queries you might have.
