University changes to faculty structure
In early 2017 the University will begin the gradual transition to a new structure comprising six faculties and three University schools.
The University of Sydney (Organisational Design – Transitional Provisions) Rule 2016 (114kb PDF) covers the management and governance of the University during the process of implementation of the Organisational Design Strategy. The rule commences on 15 December 2016 and will cease to have an effect on 8 January 2018.
For students who are affected the changes should have little impact on course delivery. Most of you will not see any difference in your day-to-day interaction with the University, however some administrative processes may change in April 2017.
Existing faculty resolutions, including award course resolutions, will transfer to the new faculty or school.
Information regarding Education and Social Work will be in the Arts and Social Sciences Undergraduate and Arts and Social Sciences Postgraduate handbooks.
Information regarding Agriculture and Environment and Veterinary Science courses will be in the Science Undergraduate and Science Postgraduate handbooks.
