Appeal based on personal circumstances (difficult life situation, misunderstanding, health reasons) or e.g. possible errors made by post offices and so on will not be considered as valid reasons for appeal. Student admission decision can be changed only in those cases where it is clearly shown that the UAS has not followed the student admission criteria.

The notification date of the decision (the date on this letter) is not included in the 14-day appeal period.
