Appeals from students with a Degree Classification

If you wish to appeal against your degree classification, by default you will still graduate under your existing award even if you appeal has not been resolved. If your appeal is successful, and you have a change of degree classification, you will be required to return the certificate and transcript that you receive at your congregation ceremony before the updated documents are forwarded to you.

You can choose to defer your graduation provided that the ceremoney date for your programme has not yet passed. If you wish to defer your graduation until your appeal has been resolved please contact Student Services through Student Help.  Please also inform the Student Conduct, Complaints and Appeals Team when you submit your appeal form. Please note that it will then not be possible for you to have your degree conferred until the next congregation period.  If you defer your summer graduation the next opportunity to graduate is December. Further information can be found on the Congregation and Awards office web pages.
