Student Appeals Body

If the Registrar determines that a student’s appeal will be heard by the Student Appeals Body (SAB), in accord with Part 5.3.3 of the University of Sydney (Student Appeals against Academic Decisions) Rule 2006, the faculty appeals officer will be contacted by the Student Affairs Unit and advised of the hearing date and time.

The faculty will be required to provide written evidence and written submissions addressing the appeal. The faculty’s submissions must provide reasons for the academic decision being appealed and may also address whether the faculty believes that due academic process has been observed. This material must be sent to the Student Affairs Unit at least eight working days before the date of the hearing.

The faculty will also be required to nominate a faculty representative to attend the hearing and to answer any questions that the SAB panel may have regarding the appeal.
