The Faculty Student Research Appeals Committee (FSRAC) is a committee comprising a Faculty Pro-Vice-Chancellor (PVC) (or nominee) and a senior academic colleague.

The Central Student Research Appeals Committee (CSRAC) is a committee comprising a Pro-Vice Chancellor (or nominee) and three Directors of Research or senior academics from across the University.  The CSRAC meets on an ad hoc basis to consider appeals by postgraduate research students against decisions about progression, assessment and awards.

Neither the FSRAC nor the CSRAC can make academic judgements; neither the FSRAC nor the CSRAC has authority to alter assessment decisions.
