University-level appeal

If you are not satisfied with the written decision of the faculty, you may appeal to the Student Appeals Body (SAB) on the grounds that due academic process has not been observed by your faculty in relation to an academic decision.

Your appeal must be lodged in writing to the registrar, via the Student Affairs Unit, within 20 working days of the date of the written decision of the relevant dean, or within such extended time as the registrar authorises.

It is important to remember that appeals will not be heard by the SAB unless:

  • the basis for your appeal has previously been considered by the relevant faculty (except if you are a postgraduate research student contesting the termination of your candidature or the examination of your thesis) and,
  • you have set out in writing your reasons, including any supporting documentation, for believing that due academic process has not been observed by the faculty.
