Problems, Complaints and Appeals
If you are in difficulty in relation to your course, you should discuss the problem in the first instance with your Supervisor or Advisor. There are also a number of other people who may be able to help you if there are difficulties in doing this, including the Head of your Research Group or Head of Division, the Secretary of the Degree Committee and the Deputy Head of Department (Graduate Studies). The Graduate Student Mediator can also offer confidential help and advice if you are in dispute with your supervisor. If your difficulties are not specifically related to your course, you should contact your College Tutor. If you wish to make a formal complaint, you should arrange a meeting with the Secretary of the Degree Committee. Further advice is available from the Student Registry.
