Complaints, Comments and Compliments

Students on a higher education course who are dissatisfied with the outcome of their complaint and have exhausted the College’s complaint process, set out in the Complaints Policy 2018, have further options available to them to seek resolution through further levels of investigation.

For complaints related to quality of learning, please contact the relevant Partner University and follow their procedure.

If you are a higher education student on a UCLan programme and are dissatisfied with the outcome of your complaint and have exhausted the College’s complaint process, you may refer your complaint to UCLan. Please refer to UCLan’s Student Support Complaints Procedure for further details.

For service related complaints, unrelated to the quality of learning, please contact the Office of the Independent Adjudicator.

HE students have a right of access to the OIA (Office of the Independent Adjudicator), as long as the provider’s internal procedures and Partner University’s procedures have been exhausted.
