Guidance for Schools

This guidance provides advice on best practice for Schools in relation to Student Support Meetings and responding to appeals to the Faculty Student Appeals Committee (FSAC).  It will also assist members of staff who are not familiar with the appeals process, and guide staff attending the Central Student Appeals Committee (CSAC) on behalf of the School. This guidance should be read in conjunction with the Academic Appeal Regulations (Taught Programmes) and the General Provisions Relating to Academic Appeals, Conduct, Academic Offences and Student Complaints.  Where there is any doubt, the Regulations take precedence over this guidance.

The guidance refers to information required by the FSAC to enable it to reach a fair and balanced decision.  It should also help to avoid further requests for information or clarification by Academic Affairs from Schools.
