Hi

Does anyone have any experience of taking SFE to the parliamentary ombudsman?

It's a bit pointless TBH.

Once you have exhausted the uni's own internal complaints/appeals process, the next step is taking your complaint to the ombudsman in the form of the Office of the Independent Adjudicator:
http://www.oiahe.org.uk/

This can be a lengthy process taking years if the uni keeps fighting. If you win, there is no way to legally enforce the OIA's final ruling and the uni isn't obliged to carry out its recommendations. If the OIA rules against you, you would then have to take them to the High Court if you believe they haven't handled the investigation correctly. That could cost many thousands of pounds.

That's the only recourse to justice outside the uni's own processes.
