1. For student issues request a Collegium hearing through your student rep, stating your issue, goal and desired outcome or for individual issue email mfa support here.
2. If you are dissatisfied with the Collegium’s decision you can refer to the Plymouth Student Complaints Procedure Board. Please note, the University will not re-investigate your complaint from scratch; Plymouth’s review will be confined to consideration of whether (or not) the College has properly followed its stated procedures and has come to a reasonable conclusion.
