What happens if a student thinks a further or higher education institution has acted unlawfully?

A person who believes that they have been discriminated against, harassed or victimised by a further or higher education institution can make a claim under the Equality Act.

In England and Wales a claim can be made to a county court and in Scotland to the sheriff court. The procedure for making a claim and the remedies a court can order are explained in detail in Dispute resolution and enforcement.
