Q. How long do I have to submit an Academic Appeal?

How long do I have to submit an Academic Appeal?


An academic appeal must be submitted within 14 days of publication of the Board’s decision (Board of Examiners/Postgraduate Research Award Board).  If you do not have all relevant evidence, you may submit your intention to appeal within 14 days of publication of the Board’s decision but all additional information must be submitted within 28 days of publication of the Board’s decision.


Please note that you must include a copy of your Board of Examiners Results Letter as feedback sheets or marks printed from Blackboard/Turnitin cannot be accepted as confirmation of your ratified results.


The Academic Appeals Procedure is available at:



Independent help and advice about completing the Academic Appeal Proforma can be obtained from the Academic Advisors in the Students' Union. Please telephone 0161 351 5400 or e-mail advicecentre-ussu@salford.ac.uk to make an appointment.


Your appeal will be considered on a ‘documents only’ basis at Stage 1 so please ensure that you read the Proforma carefully and provide all the relevant information which you wish to be considered.  It is your responsibility to state your case clearly.  The University cannot make assumptions or request further information on your behalf to support your appeal (i.e. contacting a third party to obtain evidence).   You should ensure that you complete the checklist at the end of the Academic Appeals Proforma.


Your appeal with evidence should be submitted one of the following ways:

  • Via e-mail to: academicappeals@salford.ac.uk

  • By post to: Quality and Enhancement Office, Ground Floor, Crescent House, University of Salford, M5 4WT

  • In person to: AskUs at University House (please ensure that you obtain a receipt)
