Complaints by Students at Collaborative Partner Organisations

Students studying at partner institutions (including, where appropriate, placement provision) should follow the partner's complaint procedure and will be supported in this by appropriate staff resource at partner institution.

In the event that the students studying at partner institutions are unable to gain support and assistance in the preparation of their case within their own organisation they will be provided with access to the Bradford based Student Advisors. They are also advised to contact the Complaints and Appeals department in the event that they are unable to access the complaints procedures within the partner institution.

Partner Organisations must advise students of the outcome of the investigation into their complaint by means of a formal outcome letter. The outcome letter must be clear that the students may seek a review of their case by contacting the Complaints and Appeals department via email (complaintsandappeals@bradford.ac.uk)if the matter cannot be resolved to the students satisfaction by the partner organisation.
