Office of Academic Appeals & RegulationWeb Site www.leeds.ac.uk/aaandr

Our core activities are the resolution and determination of:

academic appeals

special cases of student progress that fall outside the regulations

requests from Schools to curtail the opportunities for a student to progress

allegations of cheating, plagiarism and the submission fraudulent or fabricated coursework and academic malpractice

student disciplinary cases, both academic and non-academic

The Office is responsible for the University Committees whose work it is to investigate and decide these cases. We offer advice and guidance to Schools and individual members of staff on these and related matters. We also give procedural advice to individual students whose case is under consideration.

We provide interpretation of and advice on regulations for taught programmes of study, particularly in the context of complex cases or where special provisions are being requested.

The overall objective of the Office is the fair resolution of cases within the framework of the processes and procedures of the University.

Range of Penalties – School Level

  • The School Panel should begin with the most severe penalty that it can impose: zero for the module (irrespective of marks awarded for other components in the module) with the requirement to do a completely new piece of work, which must be of pass standard (40 - Undergraduate and 50 – Postgraduate) on a single occasion only.

  • When determining the penalty the School Panel should consider the following points:

    • Level and experience of the student

    • Percentage of the assessment and the severity of the offence

    • The student’s explanation and response to the allegation

    • Any mitigation

    • See Notes on Penalties (14) - where plagiarism has occurred in the student’s final attempt
