If you want to appeal a decision to the Higher Education Appeals Board (the public authority responsible for hearing appeals against decisions made in the higher education sector), you must do so in writing. This letter of appeal must state which decision the individual is appealing against and how, in his or her view, the decision should be changed. The reason why the decision should be changed must be clearly stated. The letter should include the reference number of the decision, the individual's address, telephone number, and email address, and should be signed.
An appeal may only be made by an individual who has been affected negatively by a decision.
Appeals should be addressed to the Higher Education Appeals Board and should be sent to:
University of Gothenburg
405 30 Gothenburg
Appeals must reach the University of Gothenburg within three (3) weeks after the decision was posted on the University of Gothenburg's Central Notice Board. Appeals received after this deadline will not be considered.
Please notice that appointments to doctoral studentships cannot be appealed.
