Match successfully helps mature student with appeal hearing

Match successfully helps mature student with appeal hearing

We recently acted for a mature student who had been withdrawn from her degree studying social work. Our client had failed her dissertation due to an unmerited delay of eighteen months on behalf of the Higher Education Institution, causing significant detriment to our client and her progression. Our client also faced personal problems during the time she was due to submit her work. This along with a lack of adequate supervision during the course in general contributed to her not achieving a pass mark and being subsequently withdrawn. Our client had exhausted her second and final attempt at the work in question.

After unsuccessfully attempting to appeal this decision herself, she instructed us to assist with the final stage of the internal appeal process. We thereafter prepared detailed written representations outlining the failings of the Higher Education Institution. A panel hearing followed our submission and we went on to represent our client at the Appeal Hearing.  Our client was successful in her appeal and was given a third and final attempt to submit her work.  She is now in the process of completing her degree and pursuing a career as a Social Worker.

Testimonials

The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring.
