Appeals and complaints
You should use the University Complaints Procedure if you are dissatisfied with any aspect of your supervision or facilities available for research. Firstly, you are encouraged to consult your supervisor or the Postgraduate Research Tutor and, after the outcome of that consultation, to make use of the University Complaints Procedure, where appropriate.

Important Notes on Email
