Further Stage Appeal

Further Stage Appeal


PART C: Request for an Appeal Panel Hearing

To be completed by: Any student who considers that their appeal, case to a Disciplinary/Students’ Progress or Fitness to Practise Committee has not been satisfactorily dealt with, and who wishes to take their concerns further.

Part C appeals will be considered by a Grounds to Proceed panel who will determine whether there are any grounds for your case to proceed to a panel hearing on the basis of procedural error, bias or prejudice.

Support for submitting an appeal

In addition to its published policies and procedures, the University has developed the following web resources to help guide you through making an appeal:

The Aberdeen University Students’ Association (AUSA) provides independent, student-focused advice, information and assistance at every stage of the appeals process. Any student who is unsure of where to go, who to speak to, or what to do next can contact the AUSA.

Students may contact the Academic Services Team within Registry for information on the appeals and complaints process.

Information for members of staff on student appeals and complaints can be found on our StaffNet webpages.
