Rights guide

If you believe you have been wrongly found guilty of plagiarism, you can appeal the decision via your university’s academic misconduct appeals process.

You should consult your university’s academic misconduct policy, which should be available on its website. You should get advice on making an appeal from your local student union or your university’s student advice centre.

Make sure you

You should raise an appeal as soon as possible and provide as much evidence as possible to support your case.

How resolver will help

Resolver will record all your emails and phone calls automatically and for free. At each stage of the process it knows who to escalate your case to within the university and when to do this.

If you are not satisfied

If you have exhausted the university’s internal appeals procedure and you are not satisfied with the outcome, you can refer your complaint to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA). The OIA is free for students to use.

Fill in the OIA complaints form and send them a copy of your resolver case file. Include the Completion of Procedures letter from your university that shows you have completed their internal complaints procedure. The complaints form can be downloaded from the OIA website, www.oiahe.org.uk. You must contact the OIA within three months of receiving the Completion of Procedures letter.

If the OIA agrees with your complaint they will make recommendations to the university on what actions to take. They cannot award compensation to students.

Be aware

The OIA cannot rule on areas of ‘academic judgement’, issues that rely on the opinion of an academic expert. This can include some issues relating to plagiarism. Information is available on the website of the Office of the Independent Adjudicator www.oiahe.org.uk.

Your final option

If you believe the university has acted illegally you can seek legal advice. You can also seek a judicial review of any decisions made by the OIA.
