Student policies

Student procedures, rules and policies are all listed in the UWA handbook.

Special consideration

Special consideration allows Faculties to take into account significant and unforeseen factors that may have affected your academic preparation or performance.

Consideration may be given for significant personal illness, the death or serious illness of someone close to you, or other significant circumstances that compromise your studies.

Review and appeal of academic decisions

Under the University Student Rules 43 and 44 a student may appeal against academic decisions relating to them.

UWA strongly recommends that students informally discuss their concerns with the relevant unit co-ordinator or academic staff member PRIOR to lodging a formal request for review, but should note that formal requests for review must be lodged within 5 working days of receipt of the academic decision.

The policy and procedure, including definitions of 'Academic Decisions' can be found in the University Policy on Review and Appeal of Academic Decisions Relating to Students
