Appealing a decision
It's possible to appeal decisions regarding your eligibility for courses and programmes you've applied for. You can only submit an appeal after you've read your admissions notification
If you find that your matter has blatantly been mishandled, contact the University admissions office immediately and preferably before the first and second selection respectively.
Not all admissions decisions can be appealed. It's important to find out what can and cannot be appealed before submitting one.
What can be appealed?
You may appeal decisions made on your Notification of Selection Results regarding whether you meet the general and specific entry requirements for a specific course or programme.
Other decisions cannot be appealed, such as:
- late or incomplete applications,
- cancelled courses or programmes or
- the selection result - whether or not you were offered a place.
