University Grievance Procedure including Breach of Contract Claims
A solicitors firm specialising in supporting the University Student
Most universities will have a grievance procedure and a complaints procedure that students can utilise if they feel that they have been let down. Indeed Higher Education establishments must have proper procedures to deal with this to include allowing students a right of appeal.
The most common grounds that are accepted are where a student can show that they have a compelling reason that was not known to the examining board before deciding a students results. A student may have under achieved for a number of reasons from ill health to inadequate supervision. It also may be that the University or college simply got it wrong when they calculated a students marks.
Some students complain that they were bullied or victimised by others and this had an impact on their studies.
Sinclairs solicitors have dealt with very large numbers of university and college cases many of which have made it through to the courts or to judicial review. The firm has also assisted many students both in the UK and abroad achieve justice.
If you believe that you have been let down by your University or College you need to be aware that there are often strictly observed time limits within which to act.
