Academic Appeals

A group of students studying

The Academic Appeals Team is part of the Quality Assurance Unit of the Academic Office and is responsible for the administration of academic appeals in accordance with Anglia Ruskin's Academic Regulations. We ensure that there are effective and timely procedures in place for the handling of academic appeals.

The Team comprises three staff .pdf file led by the Examinations and Academic Appeals Manager, Lorna Kempster. The Team is located in St. George House (2nd Floor) in Cambridge and Ashby House (2nd Floor), Chelmsford.

Full details of the Academic Appeals process are set out in Section 9 of the Academic Regulations .pdf file which includes a flow diagram which summarises the appeals process. Any student who is considering submitting an academic appeal is strongly advised to consult this section of the Academic Regulations and to discuss the matter with their Course Group Leader, Student Adviser and/or the Students' Union prior to the submission of any academic appeal.

Grounds for an Academic Appeal

A student has the right to appeal against a decision of the Anglia Ruskin Awards Board on the following grounds:

  • that there has been a material administrative error, or that the assessment(s) was not conducted in accordance with the Academic Regulations governing the course, or that some other material irregularity has occurred.

A student may not appeal on any ground which:

  • disputes only the academic judgement of the Anglia Ruskin Awards Board concerning the student’s performance in any academic work and/or work-based component of the course;
  • presents mitigating circumstances to explain that his/her performance in an assessment was adversely affected by illness or other factors unless evidence is provided that a corresponding mitigation claim has been duly submitted to the Anglia Ruskin Mitigation Panel but has not been considered in accordance with the Regulations governing the mitigation process (Academic Regulations 6.93 – 6.116 and 7.13 – 7.18).

Lodging an Academic Appeal

All academic appeals must be submitted to the Academic Appeals Team of the Quality Assurance Unit by specified deadlines which are linked to date of the relevant Anglia Ruskin Awards Board and the date of the Official Publication of Results .pdf file.

All academic appeals must be notified by use of the official Notification of Appeal Pro-forma

Students who wish to pursue an appeal further after it has been considered by the Preliminary Review Panel should complete the official Request for an Appeals Panel Hearing Pro-forma Word document.
