Applicants who are unsuccessful in applying for admission to study at the College, and who wish to appeal the decision, should follow the two stage appeal process.
Stage One Appeals
Stage Two Appeals
Applicants wishing to submit a Stage One Appeal should complete an Admissions Appeal Form, which can be found as an appendix to the Admissions Appeal Procedure. This should be submitted to the Admissions Office within 10 working days of the decision to which the appeal relates.
In accordance with the Procedure, the Head of School (or nominee) will allow the appeal to be heard if they are satisfied that one or both of the following conditions are met:
(a) Where there has been a misapplication of the general entrance requirements in the G6 Entrance Requirements Regulations, the College’s Fair Admissions Policy, and/or the specific entrance requirements of the programme of study;
(b) Where there has been another significant administrative or procedural error affecting the outcome of the application.
Receipt of the appeal shall normally be acknowledged within 10 working days, with the response to the appeal normally being provided within a further 10 working days. Where the appeal is upheld, the response will indicate the outcome of the School’s reconsideration of the application.
Where a Stage One appeal is not upheld, the applicant may appeal to the Director of Students & Education via the Student Conduct & Appeals Office. Such appeals must be received in writing within 10 working days of the date of the Stage One decision.
In accordance with the Procedure, the Director will allow the appeal to be heard if they are satisfied that one or both of the following conditions are met:
(a) Where there is evidence of a significant administrative or procedural error in the processing of the Stage One appeal;
(b) Where there is new evidence which the applicant was unable to provide as part of the Stage One appeal, and sufficient evidence remains that the initial decision on the application warrants consideration.
Receipt of the appeal shall normally be acknowledged within 10 working days, with the response to the appeal normally being provided within 30 working days of receipt. Where an appeal has been upheld (either fully or partially), the Director shall inform the School, who will communicate any further actions directly with the applicant through the Admissions Office within 10 working days of receipt of the Director’s decision.
