Student in discrimination appeal

An Indian student who accused the University of Aberdeen of racial discrimination is to appeal after her complaint was rejected.

Dr Marline John was studying for a postgraduate degree in genetics.

She claimed that staff had made racial remarks about Asian students, and she had suffered discrimination in the marks she was awarded.

The university found no evidence on the racial claims but apologised for course "shortcomings" and delays in the case.
