Any student may query or appeal against an academic decision that affects him or her.
The University entrusts the making of academic decisions (e.g. assessment, examining, exlusion) to academic staff acting in accordance with proper procedures. A student dissatisfied with a decision is able to apply to have the decision reconsidered and in appropriate cases reviewed.
The Student Appeals against Academic Decisions Rule outlines how a student may query or appeal against an academic decision.
The Student Affairs Unit of the Registrar's Division has a website outlining the appeals process.
In plain English, a summary of the 3 step appeal process is:
- Informal, personal approach to the lecturer: Students should first raise the issue with the lecturer or teacher or course coordinator concerned for resolution.
- Formal appeal to the Faculty: If the student’s concerns cannot be resolved as in step 1, or because of an apparent failure to follow procedures, the student may then lodge a formal written appeal at the Engineering Faculty Office.
- Formal appeal to the Student Appeals Body: Any student who was not satisfied with the Faculty's decision can appeal to the Student Appeals Body against the academic decision if he or she believed that due academic process had not been observed by the relevant Faculty in relation to the academic decision.
How to lodge a formal faculty level appeal
- Your appeal will be decided upon by the Dean (or his delegate in such matters). This person is independent of the original decision.
- The student shall lodge the appeal within 15 working days of the date on which he or she was advised of the decision being appeal.
- You may either submit your appeal in person to the Engineering faculty office in the PNR Building, or via email to email@example.com (for undergraduate students) or firstname.lastname@example.org (for postgraduate students)
- The written appeal should contain the following:
(a) The details of the decision being appealed. There should be sufficient detail such that a person unfamiliar with the case can understand the decision being appealed.
(b) The reasons why the student believes the original decision is wrong
(c) Any other documentation to support the case, including details of informal resolution process for assessment queries as per the first part of the appeals process.
- We recommend that you seek the advice of the SRC (http://www.src.usyd.edu.au) if you plan to appeal.
