Student Complaints

Opportunities for academics and administrators to get involved with OSCCA processes

Whilst OSCCA handle and advise on student cases, we are reliant on volunteers to act as decision-makers in our cases. We are in need of more volunteers.

If you are interested in finding out more about any of these roles then please contact OSCCA@admin.cam.ac.uk - a face to face briefing and ongoing support is given and there is no requirement for you to consider any cases unless you have the capacity to do so at the time.
