Faculty Student Appeals Committee
The Faculty Student Appeals Committee (FSAC) comprises the Faculty Pro-Vice-Chancellor (PVC) (or nominee who is a senior academic) and two colleagues at least one of whom is an academic member of staff. The FSAC considers appeals by taught students against decisions made by a Board of Examiners about progression, assessment or awards.
Central Student Appeals Committee
The Central Student Appeals Committee (CSAC) is a committee drawn from a panel of senior academics from across the University. The CSAC considers appeals by taught students against decisions made by the FSAC.
Neither the FSAC nor the CSAC can make academic judgements, i.e., change marks or degree classifications, and will not permit students to resit or retake modules which they have already passed.
