Reviews and appeals

From time to time during your University experience, you may find that you are faced with challenges, such as a decision being made that may impact your future study or career. If you want to dispute a decision made by the University the information below will help you with your submission.

Step 1

Understand the reviews and appeals process and how it works

Before submitting an application to the university, you need to understand what does and does not form grounds of review or appeal. Just because you disagree with a decision made by the University does not automatically make you eligible to make a request for a review or appeal.

Read the grounds for your particular type of review or appeal carefully. Once you know how the appeal process works and your situation meets all of the criteria set out for requesting a review or appeal you can move to the next step.

Step 2

What review or type of appeal are you requesting?

If something has happened leading up to an assessment or exam deadline, your best plan is to apply for Special Consideration before any due dates pass.

If you are beyond this point and now have an assessment mark or grade that you disagree with you can request a review.
