Covering academic appeals, academic misconduct, disciplinaries, complaints and more, the SU's independence from the University coupled with our advisers' expertise is crucial to delivering effective, objective, impartial academic advice.

More than any other area of advice we provide, it's this one that sets us apart from any other campus-based source of advice.

This area of advice covers academic appeals, academic misconduct, disciplinaries, complaints and a lot more too.

In each of these areas, the SU's independence from the University coupled with our advisers' expertise is crucial to delivering effective, objective, impartial advice.

Universities are rife with regulations – that’s not a criticism, it’s just the way it is.  Each of Falmouth University and the University of Exeter has its own policies and procedures.

Getting advice

From time-to-time students can find themselves on the wrong end of this procedure or that regulation. If you’re that student, you might want to discuss what’s happened, or happening, with an SU adviser.

You can get advice from the Students’ Union’s Advice Service.  You can book an appointment with one of our advisers or alternatively, email your enquiry to advice@thesu.org.uk

In the meantime, below you can access some useful information about some of the more common academic and university-related issues that from time-to-time arise.

Each of the two Universities has its own policies and procedures on:

  • Academic appeals

  • Academic misconduct

  • Complaints

  • Disciplinaries

  • Extenuating circumstances / mitigation

  • Health, wellbeing and support for study

  • Intermitting / interrupting

  • Withdrawing
