10. Status of a Candidate During an Appeal

10.1

A candidate who submits an appeal part way through the level, year or part, may continue provisionally until such time as a decision has been reached.  This is to ensure that a candidate whose appeal may subsequently be upheld is not academically disadvantaged.  Attendance on clinical placements shall be at the discretion of the College.

10.2

A candidate who submits an appeal at the end of a level, year or part of study shall not be permitted to progress to the next level, year or part until such time as a decision has been reached.  However, at the discretion of the College, a candidate may be permitted to informally attend teaching at the next level or part while an appeal is pending.  Such candidates shall not be regarded as enrolled on the next level or part and the University will not be liable for any expenses incurred during this informal attendance.  Decisions taken by the Academic Appeal Board will be made in the best academic interests of the candidate irrespective of any periods of informal attendance.

10.3

Candidates who continue with their studies shall be informed that, pending the outcome of any appeal, he/she may be required to withdraw from the programme or the University.

10.4

A candidate who is deemed to be eligible for an award and who subsequently submits an appeal shall be permitted to graduate. However, an award will not be issued until the outcome of the Appeal is known.
