Appealing your Discipline

Every student, if found guilty of a disciplinary offence in accordance with Ordinance XVII, has the right of appeal. This is to give you a chance to argue your case if you think you have been treated unfairly.

What support is available from the University?

Support will always be available to you: 

    • If you feel you need support because the matter is affecting your health, including your mental health, you can access support from Student Wellbeing. You can do so via our Online Referral form.
    • If you have a disability, you should contact the Student Inclusivity for further advice and support. You can do so by emailing or phoning +44 (0)1509 222770

 Guidance on how to appeal your discipline is available in the Student Handbook.
