University and Higher Education
Your time at university should be enjoyable and rewarding. Most students pass through their undergraduate and post-graduate degrees without incident.
There can be, unfortunately, occasions where unforeseen issues arise.
The most common types of concerns that students or their parents approach us with are:
- Allegations of academic misconduct. These might include plagiarism or collusion.
- Criminal Proceedings where the university have now called into question a student’s fitness to continue to practice or study on a particular course.
- Discrimination where the university has acted in a way that discriminates against the student either directly or indirectly. This might be in relation to a disability (for example, students with special educational needs or a physical or mental health condition), sex, race or age.
- Complaints about a university and its practices, procedures or standards.
