Appealing Attendance, Engagement or Non-Enrolment Exclusions

Academic Progress, Monitoring & Non-Engagement

Cardiff University students must comply with academic regulations, including regulations about enrolment, attendance, engagement with studies and academic progression.

If Cardiff University has decided:

  • Not to grant the request you have made for an Interruption of Study; or
  • To exclude you temporarily or permanently from your Programme; or
  • Not to allow you to return to study (following either an Interruption of Study or a temporary exclusion)

The information on this page gives information about how to appeal that decision.  You may decide to appeal the decision if, for example, you have a good reason for not complying with the regulations and you wish to return to study or if you believe the decision was unreasonable and you can explain why you think this.

Full details about the appeal process is in the Procedure linked on the right hand side of this page.  You should read the Procedure before starting an appeal.  Information about how to submit an appeal and what to include is given on the appeal form.

Guidance for appealing
