We welcome your feedback and, from time to time, we'll post an update on this page about improvements we've made as a result of the feedback we've received.
Please email your feedback to the School
Many unit coordinators will also provide students with an opportunity to give feedback back to the School through the "Student Evaluation of Teaching and Learning" (aka SETL) process.
More information about SETLs
If you've had a positive experience in one of your units or courses and would like to let us know, we'd love to hear about that and you might like to consider nominating your tutor, lecturer or unit coordinator for a Teaching Merit Certificate. The nomination form is available here and nominations are usually called for in May and September of each year.
You must complete and sign an assignment cover sheet for each assessment task. Assignments that are submitted without a signed cover sheet will not be marked. You can download an assignment cover sheet from the link below or pick up a copy from the School office. Instructions for how to submit your assignment are in your unit outline.
The online timetable is available here.
Please note that, subject to enrolment numbers and other factors, the timetable may be adjusted following its initial publication. You should confirm your timetable prior to attending your first class and cross-reference the online timetable information with the information provided in your unit outline. For example, this will indicate whether or not you are required to attend each timetabled class or if you need to be allocated to a particular tutorial group.
Tutorial allocation is handled differently by different units and Schools. In general, information about how tutorials will be allocated is given in the first class of each semester. If you have missed this first class you should contact your unit coordinator (see your unit outline for this information) as soon as possible
Outside of class times you should restrict your enquiries to staff consultation times (unless your tutor, lecturer or unit coordinator has indicated otherwise). If you are not able to visit during the identified times, please contact the staff member in question to make an appointment.
Please refer to your unit outline for staff consultation times.
Each assessment task in your unit is marked against the assessment criteria that are stated in your unit outline. These assessment criteria are applied equally across the unit and sometimes, across a group of related units.
Before taking steps to request a remark or a review of assessment you should carefully consider your work against the assessment criteria and take note of any feedback that has been given.
Keep in mind that a lower than hoped for mark is not a reflection of your general intelligence or your skills in any other area of your life, it is a reflection of the piece of assessment that you submitted and the progress against the unit's objectives that you have demonstrated.
Remember that your University degree is a learning experience and that part of our role is to extend your existing knowledge and skills into new areas that will take some time and practice to master.
If, after reflection, you still don't understand your result or you believe that there has been an error, either for an individual assessment task or the overall unit, please refer to the following checklist for the steps that you should take.
