All students have the right to submit an academic appeal against the outcomes of the various assessment boards, malpractice panels and fitness to practise panels.
However, you may only appeal on the following grounds:
- Procedural irregularity in the assessment process
- Bias or perception of bias
- Exceptional mitigating circumstances, details of which were, for good reason, not previously available to the appropriate assessment board.
We cannot accept appeals based solely on disagreement with an assessment board or panel decision.
You can find more information in the student guide: Academic Appeals – An Overview for Students. There is also a published booklet available.
Making an appeal and deadlines
You must submit your appeal after the formal publication of results or receipt of panel decision letter. Please make sure you submit your appeal by the deadline stated in your results or panel decision letter.
Remember to include a completed Academic Appeal form and any independent supporting evidence in your submission.

You can also contact Edge Hill Students’ Union Advice Centre, for independent advice and representation.
Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education (OIA)
When the University’s internal procedures are complete, we will send you a completion of procedures letter. This explains that if you are dissatisfied with the final outcome you can refer your matter to the OIA for review. You can find further details about the OIA Scheme on the OIA website.
Edge Hill is committed to providing accessible information. If you require any academic appeal information in a different format, please tell us your requirements and we will work with you to meet your needs.
