Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA)

The College subscribes to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA). This body acts to review complaints by students against higher education providers.

ICON College students may complain direct to the OIA, however the OIA normally requires a student to have completed the Colleges internal complaints or appeals procedures before reviewing a complaint. The OIA website provides a "Complaint Form" which the student seeking a review should submit to the OIA. Students should note, the OIA should receive the "Complaint Form" within 12 months of completing the Colleges Complaints or Appeals procedures.

The OIA website provides examples of complaints that they can and cannot look at. Students should refer the guidance provided on their website www.oiahe.org.uk for further information or guidance if they are unsure whether the OIA can look at their complaint.
