What happens next?

All appeal forms shall be given preliminary consideration by the Department of Governance and Quality Enhancement, who will notify, when appropriate, the relevant Assessment Board Chair who shall prepare a written statement providing, in detail, the proposed outcome of the appeal, including any proposed change to the original Assessment Board decision. This statement will normally be lodged with the Department of Governance and Quality Enhancement within five working days of notification.

The Department of Governance and Quality Enhancement shall be empowered to act on behalf of the Academic Appeals Committee in dismissing appeals that are not able to be considered under the University’s regulations for academic appeals, do not have grounds for appeal or do not have sufficient evidence to support an appeal. In all such cases the Department of Governance and Quality Enhancement shall inform the student accordingly and there shall be no further right of appeal.
