Appeals and Complaints


Students may appeal against the decision of a Board of Examiners. Note that appeals on the basis of academic judgement are not allowed. Students are advised to hold informal discussions with the School of Mathematics about their case prior to submission of their appeal. An appeal must be made within 20 working days of the release of results.

To submit a formal appeal you would need to complete and submit an Academic Appeals Form (Word version) with evidence to the School within 20 working days of notification of the result or decision (or 10 working days in respect of work and attendance appeals).

The University recognizes that students have a legitimate right to complain about their programme, facilities or services provided. It is hoped that most complaints can be resolved by taking up the matter with the member of staff concerned, the Schools Student Forum, the Staff-Student Liaison Committee (SSLC)  or the Head of School. However there is a University procedure for dealing with complaints that cannot be resolved informally. Further information can be found in My Manchester: Complaints
