What is an Academic Appeal?

The UAL Appeals process gives students the chance to ask the exam board to look again at their decision and consider new information that they’d have been unaware of at the time.

We’ve written a quick guide on what you need to know before submitting an appeal at UAL. This isn’t a substitute for advice so we recommend getting in touch with us if you’re about to appeal.
