If you are dissatisfied with a decision of the Board of Examiners in your School, you may appeal on grounds to the Faculty Student Appeals Committee (FSAC).
Below are answers to your Frequently Asked Questions. However the full Academic Appeal Regulations (Taught Programmes) can be found here.
- Who can help with my FSAC appeal?
- When can I appeal?
You can only appeal once your confirmed results have been published.
- Is there a deadline to submit a FSAC appeal?
- What if I miss the FSAC appeal deadline?
If you miss the deadline, the Faculty Student Appeals Committee will not normally hear your appeal.
Further information about late appeals can be found in section 1.17 of the Academic Appeal Regulations (Taught Programmes).
- I am graduating, can I still appeal?
Yes you are able to appeal, as long as you submit your appeal within ten working days of the formal publication of your final results. Submitting an appeal will not prohibit you from graduating.
If a change to your results is required following your appeal, your transcript will be amended.
If your degree classification changes after graduation, you will be issued with an amended parchment on return of your original parchment.
You are not able to submit an appeal after you have graduated from Queen’s University Belfast.
