Academic Policies


Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences policy requires that students attend all classes for the units of study in which they are enrolled. Unsatisfactory attendance may result in a failure.

Email Protocol and Etiquette

All email from instructors or university personnel will be sent to students’ registered University of Sydney email accounts. It is the responsibility of students to check their accounts regularly. Not checking email will not serve as an excuse for failing to complete an assignment or follow instructions.

When writing to instructors or other members of the class, please write with courtesy. Limit your communications to legitimate and carefully-considered questions, comments, or concerns, and please be sure that your questions are not answered in the course outlines. Include a proper salutation and your full name, and please write in complete, grammatical sentences.
