Match successfully assists student who was withdrawn from University

Match successfully assists student who was withdrawn from University

Our client was a PhD student who had passed her PhD with minor corrections at a reputable University. The University did not send her notification of the outcome of the oral viva examination and due to personal circumstances, our client was unable to chase for this. Three years passed whereby the University did not get into contact with our client. When the University did finally email our client, they gave her 14 days within which to respond, failing which, she would be withdrawn from the University without her PhD. The University withdrew our client and took away her PhD. Our client tried to appeal the decision but was unsuccessful as she was issued with a completion of procedures letter.  Our client sought assistance from us. After reviewing her file, we wrote to the University on strong terms as to the unfairness of the circumstances which our client was placed under. As a result of our letter, the University decided exceptionally to re-open her case to he heard by an appeal panel. We assisting our client to prepare for the hearing and the Panel found in her favour. She has now been re-awarded her PhD.

Mr Reekie, Croydon

Miss E Field, London

Match Solicitors were highly recommended to us not only for their undisputed comprehensive knowledge of the SEN legal minefield, but for their understanding of autism and other disorders and consequent compassionate work ethic. Their diligence and consummate professionalism ensured that the Local Authority were forced to take our son’s case seriously. It is almost impossible to articulate how grateful we are to Rishi and Anita for their hard work and dedication.
