The right of appeal

BI Norwegian Business School is subject to the Public Administration Act in procedural matters. Individual decisions may be appealed in accordance with Section 28 of the Public Administration Act.

Such decisions are decisions relating to one person or several specific persons. Examples of such decisions at BI Norwegian Business School are decisions relating to admission/refusal of admission, decisions relating to the granting/refusal of applications for exemption from examinations and decisions relating to special examinations arrangements.

The Appeals Committee at BI Norwegian Business School is the appeals body with respect to individual decisions with the exception of appeals relating to decisions for the annulment of grades or exclusion due to cheating, cf. Regulations relating to Admissions, Studies and Examinations at BI Norwegian Business School Section 5-15where there is a separate appeals committee. Such decisions will be accompanied by relevant information.

Separate regulations apply for appeals against grading, se the Regulations on Admission, studies and examinations for BI Norwegian Business School Section 5-13 (2) and information on the student web portal. 

Appeals are to be put forward in writing and you must clarify what you feel is incorrect about the decision. Any additional information to the matter must be included.

The letter of appeal shall be sent to:

  • BI Norwegian Business School, attention of the sender of the decision.

 (the letter of appeal must not be sent directly to the Appeals Committee).

The unit that has considered the matter will review it once again and determine whether there are circumstances in the matter that justify a reversal of the decision (cf. Section 33 of the Public Administration Act).
