The Student Grants Appeals Board (Appeals Board) is independent in the performance of its functions.
The appeal of the student referred to by the Deputy was considered by the Appeals Board on 3rd February 2015 and the Appeals Board wrote to the student requesting further information to assist it in making a decision on the student’s appeal. The file has been received from Student Universal Support Ireland. The student should reply as comprehensively as possible to the questions put by the Appeals Board so that it may make its final determination
