Appeals

Students can seek to have a decision reviewed if they feel:

  • a decision has been made without full knowledge of the circumstances
  • they have been unfairly treated in some way.

Each type of appeal has its own process that needs to be followed.  Choose the type of appeal that is applicable to your situation.

Higher degree by research

If you are a higher degree by research student, refer to the appeals process outlined in the University statutes and rules:

  • Rule No. 10 Made Pursuant to Statute 12 – Enrolment: Degree of Doctor by Research
  • Rule No. 11 Made Pursuant to Statute 12 – Enrolment: Degree of Master by Research

Next step

If a student considers that they have been unfairly or improperly treated in the appeals process, they have the right to lodge a complaint with the Integrity and Standards Unit through the Complaint Resolution Process.

You can also submit a complaint through the external complaint mechanisms which are in place.
