R (on the application of Zahid) v University of Manchester; R (on the application of Rafique-Aldawery) v St George's, University of London; R (on the application of Sivasubramaniyam) v University of Leicester

Practice – Stay of proceedings. The Administrative Court stayed judicial review proceedings by three claimants against the defendant higher education institutions pending determination of their reference to the interested party, the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education (OIA). A reference to the OIA, was an alternative remedy to judicial review, but it should not normally exclude the practical scope of judicial review. The court also gave guidance on the appropriate procedure in such cases.
