Should you be dissatisfied with the University's response under the Act,
you have the right to ask the University formally to review its decision. 
If you ask us to do this such a review will normally be undertaken by a

decision.  The University may, however, refer the matter to a lay member
of the University Court to undertake the review where this is deemed
appropriate.  Any request for review must be in writing or another form
capable of preservation, be received not later than 60 working days
following the date of your original request and state the matter which
gives rise to your dissatisfaction.  It should be addressed to Mr B

Yours sincerely,
