The Faculty Cases team work on behalf of the Academic Faculties to manage casework related to the following procedures:

  • academic misconduct
  • student complaints
  • student academic appeals
  • fitness to practise

The team work to support students through these processes and to ensure that cases are managed in a manner that is fair, transparent and legally sound and that policies are applied consistently across the University and meet the expectations of regulators and the Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA).

With reference to Academic Misconduct we work closely with ACOs and SACOs, and with other student support teams such as your Hub or Info Point. Our role is to collate and distribute documentation and information to those with a verified business need, following procedures set out in Chapter 12 of the Assessment Progression and Awarding Handbook ‘Academic Conduct and Practice’.

We are your primary point of contact for any concerns around the process itself, and we will also signpost you to other teams if we think that they are better able to support you or answer your questions.
