Academic Appeals - Postgraduate Research Students

The Academic Appeals Committee for Graduate Students will consider appeals arising out of examinations, and other academic circumstances, from registered graduate students where the graduate student's case

  • (i) is not adequately covered by the ordinary regulations of the College,
  • or
  • (ii) is based on a claim that the regulations of the College were not properly applied in the applicant's case,
  • or
  • (iii) represents an ad misericordiam appeal.

An appeal other than an ad misericordiam cannot be made against the normal application of College academic regulations approved by the University Council. Appellants should first have pursued the course of action most appropriate to their case. The Academic Appeals Committee will consider appeals concerning events occurring more than 4 months previously only in the most exceptional circumstances.

More information on the Appeals Process for Graduate Students can be found in the College Calendar Part III.
