The appeals procedure

When the University makes a decision relating to an individual student it should be made clear that the decision can be appealed against and in which case how this can be done.

The Appeals Committee at the University handles the appeals procedure for the following decisions made by the University:

  • decisions relating to applicants who do not fulfil eligibility requirements for admission to a course at basic (Bologna first cycle) or advanced (Bologna second and third cycles) levels and decisions not to make exemptions from the eligibility requirements in cases as set out in chapter 7 paragraph 3 second sentence or paragraph 28 second part.
  • decisions relating to the crediting of previous education or professional / vocational experience,
  • rejection of a student´s request for exemption from compulsory course components,
  • decisions to withdraw financial resources for a PhD student’s research training programme in accordance with chapter 6, paragraph 37 and the decision to withhold resources to a PhD student in accordance with chapter 6, paragraph 38.
  • rejection of applications to be issued with a degree certificate or course certificate.
  • decisions not to grant persons who have been admitted to a course at basic or advanced level deferment from commencing their studies or to continue their studies following a study break.

Disciplinary decisions can be appealed against via the general administrative court. Decisions to restrict access to public documents can be appealed against via the Administrative Court of Appeal.

An appeal against a decision should be made in writing. In the appeal it should be stated clearly which decision the appeal concerns and the amendment to the original decision which is desired. The appeal is then sent to the head of the public authority at the authority responsible for making the decision (to the Vice-Chancellor of Halmstad University). The University will then check that the appeal has been received within three weeks from the day when the person making the appeal was first informed of the decision. The University then sends the appeal on to the authority responsible for making the decision on the appeal.
