Tips

In early 2020, the Alpha Academic Appeals team produced a new online video tutorial on handling allegations of academic misconduct.  It contains lots of advice on how to defend yourself against these potentially life-changing allegations.  You can learn more about the tutorial here.

In September 2019, the team created 'The No-Nonsense Guide to Writing a Great Appeal'. The 45-minute course should greatly improve your appeal and will help avoid common pitfalls.

We also have free download guides on academic appeals and misconduct.  These are available on this website.

The team has published several articles on student appeals.  A selection appears below.
