What is an Appeal?
An appeal is a request to review a decision regarding the progress of the appellant on their programme of study. Students initiate an appeal through an appeal application.

The reasons students can make an appeal are detailed on the appeal application. Most commonly, students would be eligible to appeal if you have been formally withdrawn by GSM London or for one of the reasons below:  

  • Failure of a module at the 3rd attempt

  • No academic progress across two consecutive semesters

  • If you're Mitigating Circumstances have been rejected

  • If you have a Proven Academic Misconduct on your account
