What is an Appeal?
An appeal is a student's request for a formal review of a decision affecting their academic progress of the appellant on their programme of study. Students initiate an appeal by completing an appeal form. Appeal applications must be supported by relevant evidence.

The reasons students can make an appeal are detailed on the appeal form. Most commonly, students would be eligible to appeal if you have been formally withdrawn by GSM London or for one of the reasons below: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 Extenuating Circumstances have been declined
  • If you have a Proven Academic Misconduct on your record

You can view full Academic and Regulatory Appeal document and form here.

Where to locate the Appeal form?

You can locate the Appeal form on your student portal on the home page > Submit Assessment > Forms and Guidance > Appeal Application

When to submit the Appeal form?

Appeal forms must be lodged within 14 days (10 working days) of the date on which the student was notified of the decision they wish to appeal. Forms should be submitted to the Student Hub.

How will I be notified?

You will be notified by the OSCAR team within 10 working days of the official Appeals Panel meeting.
