  • Reviews of mitigating circumstances

    Students can seek a review of decisions on a Type 1 (one week) mitigating circumstances application by contacting the Secretary of the Faculty Panel (see Mitigating Circumstances Panel Membership) clearly stating the decision you are requesting a review of. This request must be made within 5 working days of receiving the Module Leader's decision.

    If you have had your Type 2 or Type 3 mitigating circumstances application declined, you may request a review with the University Review Panel. Please note the Review Panel can only look at your original application and the original evidence. If you would like to make a further statement or have additional evidence to provide, it may be preferable to submit a new request.

    If you would like to submit a new application, then please do so in the same way as you did for the first application.

    If you would like to request a review to be heard by the Review Panel, please email studentdisputes@brookes.ac.uk.

    In your email, please include:

    • for which module(s) you would like the request to be reviewed, 
    • the email response from the Faculty Mitigating Circumstances Panel and,
    • a statement explaining that you would like a review. Please include some basic information, e.g. the dates you were declined and the module numbers.

    Please see the mitigating circumstances regulations and the mitigating circumstances webpage for more information.

    If you would like to discuss this in further detail, please contact the Student Disputes Team or Brookes Union Advice Service.
