1.2 SECURITY AND ACCESS

1.2.1 SAFETY AND SECURITY FOR STUDENTS

Safety: The University of Wollongong's Workplace Health and Safety Unit aims to provide the campus

community with the structures, system and support to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all at the

campus. They facilitate, guide and encourage management and employees to strive to achieve a work

environment that minimises risk and has safety as a core value.

*Important safety note for Sydney Business School*: Students who bring in laptops to lectures are

requested to charge their laptops before attending class. This is to prevent staff and students from tripping

over charging cables.

Security: The Sydney Business School is located at The Gateway Building, Level 8, 1 Macquarie Place.

The campus and building is protected with electronic surveillance 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Students must carry student identification cards AT ALL TIMES while in the building. Sydney Business

School lanyards are available to students free of charge from Level 8 Student Services.

The first point of contact for any safety and security concerns should be the Sydney Business School staff at

Student Services on Level 8.

A safety wallet guide which communicates important safety and security information including relevant

contact details is available on the Sydney Business School website at Current Students->Safety and

Security:

http://business.uow.edu.au/sydney-bschool/current/security/index.html

NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: The Sydney Business School also has a Safety, Awareness and

Crime Prevention guide which is highly recommended for you to read. This is also available on the Sydney

Business School website at:

http://business.uow.edu.au/sydney-bschool/current/security/index.html

You can collect a printed version of both the safety wallet guide and international student guide from the

student services on Level 8 at Sydney Business School.

1.2.2 ACCESS

Opening hours of the School and building access hours are listed under 1.1 School contact details and

opening hours.

Nearest Parking is available in the Macquarie Street Car Park, or Alfred Street Car Park (entry via Pitt St),

Monday to Sunday. Charges apply.

1.2.3 SATURDAY ACCESS

Access on Saturdays is only for students who have classes scheduled on Saturdays. These students will be

issued an access card, once a card-access form has been completed. This card will allow them access into

2


the building for the relevant Trimester/Session. Building access on Saturdays is only available between the

hours of 9.00 am and 5.00 pm.

It is the student’s responsibility to obtain an access card prior to the first Saturday class. Access cards can

be collected from Sydney Business School student services during the week before the first scheduled

class. To be issued with a card, students must produce their student identification card and be enrolled in a

subject which is scheduled on Saturdays. Students are responsible for their cards and are not to loan them

to others under any circumstances.

Access cards must be returned at the end of each Trimester/Session, immediately after the last intensive

class, even if you are to enrol in another Saturday mode subject in the following Trimester/Session. This is to

comply with the security procedure in place.

If a card is lost, a replacement cost of $50 must be paid before another card is issued, which covers the cost

of supplying the replacement card. If a student fails to return his/her access card, they will have their

results withheld by the University and will be unable to graduate.

1.3 EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

If an emergency occurs at Sydney Business School:

• Sydney Business School staff will be informed by the Building Managers as to what type of

emergency has occurred and what the procedure is.

• Sydney Business School staff members (wearing a yellow or red helmet) will instruct all staff,

students and visitors in the premises of the correct procedures.

• In case of a fire emergency the assembly point is at First Fleet Park which is the open park between

the Museum of Contemporary Art and Circular Quay.

• In the case of another kind of an emergency, the assembly point will be advised by the building

managers, and this will be communicated to students and staff via Sydney Business School staff

members.

• In the event of a building evacuation, staff and students may not re-enter the building until advised

by the building managers or security staff.

3.3 OTHER ACADEMIC UNIT SESSIONS

In some of the degrees, with approval from the Head of Students or Course Director, students may enrol in

subjects offered by other academic units within the University of Wollongong. Students who choose to

complete elective subjects at Wollongong campus which are offered by other academic units should

consider that these subjects will be delivered over the standard University sessions: Autumn, Spring and

Summer.

Session Dates:

3.4 STUDENT ONLINE SERVICES (SOLS)

All University of Wollongong students are provided with access to our Student OnLine System (SOLS).

Students use SOLS for the following:

• Subject enrolment and withdrawal

• Access to online subject resources (Moodle)

• Print enrolment record

• View assessment and final marks awarded throughout the Trimester/Session and final marks.

• awarded for the subject at the end of the Trimester/Session

• Update personal contact details

• View fee information and a statement of outstanding fees

• Tutorial enrolments

• Student forms

• Application to graduate

• Apply for Academic Consideration

• View SOLS messages received

• View examination timetable

To access SOLS visit the website: http://www.uow.edu.au/student/index.html . Students who have forgotten

their username or password should go to “Trouble logging in?” and they may log on by using their student

number, barcode and date of birth. The barcode is displayed on a student’s identification card. Students are

encouraged to manage their own account and password, by going to

http://www.uow.edu.au/student/UOW009736.html .

The Sydney Business School and the University commonly use SOLS Mail to communicate important

messages. Students must ensure that their postal address and contact telephone numbers are current in

SOLS.

3.5 STUDENT MAIL

SOLS Mail is the University’s primary method of communication with students. It is University policy that

students check their SOLS Mail regularly, at least once each week. A SOLS mail message will automatically

appear on the screen after log in if the University has sent mail. Students should not confuse SOLS mail with

UOWmail; they are not the same and work in different ways, although students will be notified through

UOWmail when a SOLS message is sent.

11


3.6 EMAIL GUIDELINES: CONSULTATION WITH YOUR SUBJECT COORDINATOR AND/OR

LECTURERS VIA EMAIL

Your lecturers receive many emails each day. In order to enable them to respond to your emails

appropriately and in a timely fashion, we ask students to observe basic standards of professional

communication.

Please ensure you include full name and student ID number so your identification can be verified.

Use your UOW email address to send any emails to UOW staff. Emails from non-UOW email addresses may

be trapped by the UOW Junk Mail manager and may not be delivered. Your lecturers have the discretion not

to respond to emails sent by students from a non-UOW email account due to potential privacy issues.

Identify the subject code of the subject you are enquiring about in the email header, as your lecturer may be

involved in more than one subject. Add a brief, specific header after the subject code where appropriate.

Consider whether your question is addressed elsewhere, e.g. in the subject outline or on the subject

eLearning site. Is it something that is better discussed in person or by telephone? If so, see consultation

times and/or schedule an appointment. Are you addressing your request to the most appropriate person?

Address your lecturer appropriately by name (and formal title if you do not yet know them). Include your full

name and student number. Identify your tutorial group in your email where applicable. Use full words,

correct grammar and correct spelling. Avoid ‘text-speak’ abbreviations or slang. Be respectful and

courteous.

Academics will normally respond within 1-2 days. If the matter is urgent, you may wish to telephone the

Teaching Staff whose contact details are given in this subject outline or contacting the School.

A guide to eLearning ‘Netiquette’ is available at:

http://www.uow.edu.au/student/elearning/netiquette/index.html

The basic principles of Netiquette also apply to email communication.

3.7 SUBJECT SELECTION

Students who are enrolled full time must follow the recommended order of subjects for their degree.

These study sequences are distributed at orientation. Subject sequences are also available on Sydney

Business School website:

http://business.uow.edu.au/sydney-bschool/current/study-sequences/index.html

Students need to enrol in all subjects for the calendar year, according to the sequences described above.

This will ensure a place in the relevant subject, as all classes have limited quotas.

Those students who deviate from the recommended study sequence or ‘Fail’ subject/s attempted may take

longer to complete their degree and/ or have to enrol in subject/s at another campus. These students are

encouraged to discuss subject enrolments with their Course Director.

3.8 ADDITION OR WITHDRAWAL OF SUBJECTS

Students need to check the key dates for each Trimester/Session to avoid potential problems regarding their

enrolment at Sydney Business School. If a student withdraws subject/s after the Census date listed for the

relevant Trimester/Session, they will lose their fees and/ or receive a fail grade on their academic transcript.

To avoid having a fail grade an Application for Late Withdrawal without Academic Penalty can be submitted

subject to approval by the Head of students.

The key dates for 2015 are listed in Section 3.1 and Section 3.2 of this handbook.

3.10 SUBJECT TIMETABLES

Subjects are scheduled either on a weekly basis or delivered in intensive mode over five days usually on

Fridays and Saturdays. Intensive subjects are designed to limit the time that part time students need to take

off work.

Students have the option of enrolling in subjects at another of the University’s campuses including Loftus

Education Centre or campus in Wollongong. Subject availability and timetables for these campuses are

available at the website: http://www.uow.edu.au/student/timetables/info/index.html .

Students should regularly review the timetable close to the commencement of Trimester/session, as often

class times may change.

3.11 WITHDRAWING OR CHANGING COURSES

Students, who are experiencing difficulties with their course, should first discuss this with the Course

Director or Head of Students. If a student still intends to withdraw from their course, they need to withdraw

before the census date (see Section 3.1 and Section 3.2 Key Dates).

International students should always refer to the UOW International student website:

http://www.uow.edu.au/student/international/withdraw/index.html and find out what procedures to follow

depending on their circumstances, should they wish to withdraw from their courses.

If a student wishes to transfer to another course, they should seek advice from the Course Director or Head

of Students. The Course Director or Head of Students will provide advice on credit or exemption that may be

granted for previous subjects completed, along with subject selection and recommended sequence of study.

3.12.1 Instalment Plan

The University of Wollongong recognises that students may experience difficulty paying full tuition fees by

the census date (due date). To provide some measure of support to these students the University offers the

Tuition Fee Instalment Plan referred to as an instalment plan. The instalment plan is available as a payment

option for international students and domestic postgraduate students not eligible for FEE-HELP, who are

enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit points during Autumn, Spring sessions, Trimesters (for Sydney Business

School students), and 12 credit point during Annual session.

The Instalment plan is not applicable:

• For students enrolled in the first session of their studies

14


• For sessions / subjects of less than 13 weeks duration including Summer Session. Students

enrolled in trimesters can apply provided they are enrolled in a minimum of 1 subject per trimester.

• Trimester annual session, i.e. Trimester1/2, and Trimester2/3

• For students with a previous unreliable payment history

• Students eligible for a HECS-HELP loan

Fees payable for first instalment: Payment is due on or before the session census date. The first instalment

is 50% of the total tuition fees as per the Tuition Fee Instalment Plan contract.

Fees payable for second instalment: The remaining 50% of the total tuition fees as per the Tuition Fee

Instalment Plan contract is due for payment by the provided due date.

An administration fee is charged to cover the cost of the Tuition Fee Instalment Plan, and is due prior to

census date. For International students the fee is $110.00 (Inc GST) and for Domestic Students it is $88.00

(Inc GST) and is non-refundable).

No further fee extensions will be considered if a student is approved for an instalment plan but has failed to

fulfil the financial obligations of the instalment plan.

For further information about tuition instalment plans, please refer to

http://www.uow.edu.au/student/finances/UOW119013.html

4 ACADEMIC MATTERS

4.1 SUBMITTING ASSESSMENT TASKS

A Sydney Business School assignment cover sheet must be attached to each piece of written assessment.

This cover sheet can be obtained from the Sydney Business School Student services or website:

http://business.uow.edu.au/businesscentral/UOW155483.html

Students must submit written assessments in class, unless otherwise stated in the subject outline at the

School student services on the due date at the specific time directed by the individual lecturer (no later than

5pm). The lecturer or a member of the School administrative staff will sign and stamp the cover sheet and a

receipt will be given to the student. Students must retain their assignment receipt and a hard or soft copy of

the assessment work until after the completion of the Trimester/Session. Assignments submitted after 5pm

must be placed in the assignment drop-in box next to Student services.

Faxing, mailing or emailing of assignment work will NOT be accepted at Sydney Business School.

Assessment work received by these methods will not be marked.

Returning assessment tasks & retention of assessments

The lecturer will return written assessment tasks either in class or inform students that they are available

for collection at the School student services (collection only until 5pm). Each assessment task will be

awarded a mark and have written feedback from the lecturer. Assessment tasks which are relevant to the

final examination for the subject will be marked and available for collection before the final examination.

Uncollected written assessments will be retained by the School until the end of the appeal period (10 days

after the distribution of the mark or release of final grade).

Students are expected to retain marked assessment tasks until the subject results have been released at

the end of the Trimester/Session.

Penalties for late submission of assessment

Assessed work must be handed in by the date and time given. Assessed work handed in late will be

penalized by the deduction (from the mark given to the assessed work) of 20 percentage points per working

day or part thereof. The operation of this rule will not result in a negative mark being carried forward.

4.2 TURNITIN

Turnitin is an online text-matching software program used by UOW as a tool to detecting plagiarism.

It can also be used by students to check their own referencing before submitting assignments. The Turnitin

system checks each student’s written assessment against electronic text on the Internet, in published works

(including ABI/Inform, Periodical Abstracts, Business dateline, and electronic books), on the ProQuest and

Gale commercial databases, and in every assignment previously submitted to Turnitin worldwide.

When a student submits his/her written assessment to Turnitin, the system generates an ‘originality report’

that highlights the similarity found between the assessment and all the sources checked by Turnitin.

Turnitin does not check that references are in the correct UOW Harvard format. It is the student’s

responsibility to check that all references follow the UOW Harvard format detailed at:

http://www.library.uow.edu.au/referencing

It is compulsory for all Sydney Business School students to submit all* written assignments to the Turnitin

system before submitting the hard copy to the School reception or lecturer. A printed copy of the originality

report obtained from the Turnitin system must be attached to submitted assignments.

Any assignment received which does not have an attached report, will not be marked and therefore be

awarded a 0 for this assessment task.

Students are encouraged to submit drafts of their assignment to Turnitin before the due date, thus enabling

students to check their referencing and rectify any issues before submission of the final version.

18


UOW students can access the Turnitin system via their Moodle online elearning site through SOLS, they

must adhere to the following guidelines:

1. Use one document name only that includes your UOW student number

2. Any resubmissions must use the same document name as the original submission

3. The Reference List must be included in your Turnitin submission

4. Do not include the assignment topic question at the beginning of your submission

5 The originality report provided with the assignment submission must be consistent with your last

submission to Turnitin

Failure to comply with these requirements may result in penalties being applied.

To access each subject’s Turnitin electronic submission site, students will require log on to SOLS using their

UOW username and password, access their elearning site and select their subject.

Detailed instructions on how to use and obtain access to the Turnitin system can be found at the website:

http://www.uow.edu.au/student/services/ld/staff/UOW022082.html

For further information on the UOW policy on Academic Integrity and Plagiarism please visit:

http://uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058648.html

New students should attend the Turnitin information Session, held during day 2 of orientation.

* Note: Some selected subjects do not require students to use the Turnitin system.

See your lecturer or the Sydney Business School Librarian if you are unsure about subject Turnitin

submission requirements.

4.3 SUBJECT COMPLETION REQUIREMENTS

To be eligible to pass a subject, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 50%, submit all

assessment tasks for the subject and achieve at least 50% in the final examination.

The grades of performance and associated ranges of marks for 900 (post graduate) Level subjects are listed

below:

High Distinction 85% to 100%

Distinction 75% to 84%

Credit 65% to 74%

Pass 50% to 64%

Fail

Technical Fail

0% to 49% (unsatisfactory completion)

A Technical Fail is a fail grade allocated in instances when a student fails to

achieve a minimum performance Level as stated in the Subject Outline but gains

a mark of 50 or greater (for 900 Level subjects).

4.3.1 Failure to attain minimum performance Levels

Where a student gains a mark of 50 or greater (for 900 Level subjects) and does not meet a specified Level

in an assessment task required to pass the subject a Technical Fail grade shall be used. Where a Technical

Fail is given the following applies:

a. Failure of the subject;

b. TF (Technical Fail) without a mark will be granted;

c. TF will be presented on the student’s Academic Transcript; and

d. The allocated mark of 44 will be used as the WAM calculation for subjects at all Levels.

19


Where a subject has a minimum performance Level required for either the subject, and/or for specific

assessment tasks that are part of the subject, this must be included in the Subject Outline with the

statement that students who do not meet the minimum performance requirements as set out in the Subject

Outline will be given a TF grade on their Academic Transcript.

For the legend of grades used by UOW please refer to:

http://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/legend/index.html

4.4 ACKNOWLEDGEMENT PRACTICE

It is essential to give appropriate credit to authors for their ideas. Failure to give credit within the established

procedures is called plagiarism.

Plagiarism means using the ideas of someone else without giving them proper credit. For example, that

someone else may be an author, critic, journalist, artist, composer, lecturer, tutor or another student.

Unintentional plagiarism can result if you do not understand and use the acceptable scholarly methods of

acknowledgement. Whether plagiarism is deliberate or unintentional, the University will impose penalties,

which can be very severe.

When it is desirable, or necessary, to use other people's material, take care to include appropriate

references and attribution. Plagiarism is not tolerated and has led to expulsion from the University.

Students should visit the following University website and become familiar with the University’s policy on

plagiarism: http://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058648.html

The use of information provided on websites established for the purpose of providing assessment task

solutions can constitute plagiarism. Similarly, the provision of information to such sites can be regarded as

aiding the commitment of plagiarism. Requesting information about assessment solutions from current or

previously enrolled students may also be interpreted as intent to commit plagiarism. Such activities should

be avoided as they can potentially represent student academic misconduct and be subject to penalty.

4.5 REFERENCING TECHNIQUES

A new learning support product is now available for students. It provides a structured framework to guide

students through citing and referencing protocols across a range of styles including AGLC, UOW Harvard,

APA6, Oxford, Chicago and MLA to name a few.

The new framework is available via the Library website:

http://public01.library.uow.edu.au/refcite/style-guides/html/

This is a guide for students to provide a baseline of knowledge around generic referencing protocols.

Students are referred back to their faculties for advice regarding school-based style preferences

Accurate referencing is critical to quality academic writing and students must avoid plagiarism. Sydney

Business School students should use the UOW Author-Date (Harvard) System when writing assignments. It

is the responsibility of students to ensure that they correctly reference all information sources in

assignments. For guidelines on Harvard style referencing, see the UOW Author-Date (Harvard) Referencing

Guide: http://www.library.uow.edu.au/resourcesbytopic/UOW026621

It is necessary for students to reference all sources used in their written work including (but not limited to);

journal articles, websites, podcast/vodcasts, images, government publications, emails and

newspaper/magazine articles. Students should consult the University Library website for Harvard

referencing guidelines and examples: http://www.library.uow.edu.au/referencing

New students should attend the scheduled Learning and Development Referencing workshops. For further

referencing assistance, students should make an appointment with the Sydney Business School Learning

and Development Lecturer Theresa Millman (Ph: 02 4221 4936, tmillman@uow.edu.au), see their lecturer

or see the Sydney Business School Librarian.

examination results or overall results achieved for the subject.

The date of release of final results is listed at the website:

http://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/resultspub/index.html

4.8 STUDENT ACADEMIC CONSIDERATION POLICY

The University applies strict criteria to the granting of academic consideration. Before applying, students

should carefully read the University’s Academic Consideration Policy that can be found at:

http://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058721.html

Academic consideration is a process intended to help minimise the impact of serious or extenuating

circumstances beyond a student’s control which significantly impair a student’s ability to complete an

assessment task on or by the due date or to progress academically in a subject relevant to their course of

study. Academic consideration may be granted on the basis of medical grounds, compassionate grounds

and/or extenuating circumstances.

All applications for academic consideration must be supported by appropriate documentation as fixed by

clauses mentioned in Application Times and Supporting Documentation Requirements. Supporting

22


documentation must comply with the criteria set out in these clauses; failure to comply will result in the

application being denied. Applications without supporting documentation will not be considered

Students cannot apply for academic consideration after completing and submitting an assessment task,

including an examination, or once grades have been declared for that subject. In these circumstances,

students can consult with the Head of Students of the Faculty which offered the subject or lodge a grievance

following the Faculty’s grievance procedures.

Students with Potential Graduate (PG) status who fail one subject in their final session of a course may be

permitted to sit a supplementary exam in that subject. For students to be eligible to apply for a

supplementary exam they must have failed one subject only in the final session and they must have

completed and passed (overall) the assessment tasks in the course.

Students will be notified via SOLS of the supplementary exam details in these instances. There is only one

opportunity to sit the supplementary exam, and no further opportunity will be given if you do not attend at

the given time.

4.8.1 APPLICATION TIMES

Firstly, you should apply online through SOLS for academic consideration in advance or on the

due/scheduled date of the assessment task. On rare occasions, students can apply no later than three

working days after the due/scheduled date. Late applications will be denied for non-compliance unless an

exemption is granted in exceptional circumstances.

To apply for academic consideration, you must:

• log onto SOLS to create a Student Academic Consideration Application.

• read the information page that appears first.

• click ‘I understand’ to acknowledge you have read the relevant information.

• complete the Academic Consideration Application form filling in the details. You will need to

select the subject/s, enter the due dates of the assessment task, select the type of assessment

task, the grounds for academic consideration, what occurred and how it affects your ability to

complete the assessment

Please note that you will not be able to submit the application unless all boxes are completed.

Once you have completed the application for academic consideration, print it off for your records. It contains

the academic consideration application number, the date it was submitted and lists the subjects you have

requested academic consideration for.

4.8.2 SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS

Secondly, you must provide original supporting documentation which indicates the exact dates of the event

or circumstance and the impact on the assessment:

• within three working days for applications made in advance or on the due/scheduled date OR

• on the same day or next working day for applications made after the due/scheduled date

Supporting documentation should be an original document. In circumstances where this is not possible,

submit an original certified copy. All supporting documentation should indicate the exact dates of the

event or circumstance and how this will impact on the assessment.

The supporting documentation must be verified by staff at the Sydney Business School. Details of the

dates you were affected from/to are confirmed and the document is verified. If you cannot provide

supporting documentation, you must seek advice from the Subject Coordinator before or at the same time

as applying. In this case, you will need to submit a Statutory Declaration to support your application.

4.8.3 KEEPING RECORDS

You must keep the original supporting documentation for twelve months in the event it is requested by the

faculty.

23


Once the documentation is verified, the academic consideration application is sent via e-mail to the Subject

Coordinator. You can generally expect to get an email response within 5 working days after verification.

If you have any questions about this process please contact Student Central on +61 2 4221 3927.

Students will be sent a SOLS message with the outcome of their application. Academic Consideration may

include: an extension of time to submit work, or a supplementary examination.

4.9 STUDENT ACADEMIC COMPLAINTS PROCESS

Student academic complaints process to appeal against a decision or action affecting student academic

performance and/or academic experience.

The Staff of the Faculty understand that from time to time you may have a complaint concerning assessable

work or any other type of decision or action of a staff member that you are unable to resolve with that

person on an informal basis.

In recognition of this situation, we have provided you with a process for determination of your complaint that

takes into account our commitment to deal with such matters fairly and equitably. The University aims to

treat any concerns or complaints seriously and to seek a resolution as quickly as possible.

You must lodge any appeal/complaint within ten (10) working days of the release of the mark for the

assessable work or the decision or action about which you are complaining. If you wish to proceed with this

process, you should download the form at: http://business.uow.edu.au/UOW119693.html

4.10 COURSE PROGRESS REQUIREMENTS

Students at the University of Wollongong must meet the University’s Course Progress Requirement rules.

The University seeks to identify and provide assistance to students who are experiencing difficulties with

their studies. This process offers students remedial assistance and is intended to prevent a decline in

performance and results.

You are required to pass more than 50% of credit points attempted in a study period to satisfy course

progress requirements. (Summer session results are not included for course progress monitoring.) If

students are unsuccessful in achieving these requirements, their course status will change.

What are the course progress stages?

Stage 1: Referral: If you do not pass more than 50% of the credit points attempted in any study period

(excluding Summer session) their course status will change to Referral. You are encouraged to seek

assistance for your studies from your Course Progress Advisor (this is the Head of Students).

Stage 2: Restricted: If you are on Referral and do not pass more than 50% of the credit points attempted in

the next or subsequent study period (excluding Summer session) your course status will change to

Restricted. When on Restricted you are required to pass more than 50% of your credit points to remain

enrolled at the University of Wollongong. You are encouraged to make an appointment with your Course

Progress Advisor (this is the Head of Students at the Sydney Business School) to discuss your studies. This

means that you cannot enrol into subjects until you meet with your Course Progress Advisor. You have been

withdrawn from subjects if you were already enrolled in a future session.

Actions you need to take:

1. You must meet with your Course Progress advisor and discuss an Intervention Strategy and your

Restricted Credit Point Limit. Contact your Faculty now.

2. Your Course Progress Advisor with then inform how may credit pints you will be permitted to enrol into.

24


3. Your Credit point limit will be changed from zero to the agreed limit.

4. You will be notified via SOLS of the change and your will then be able to enrol into subject with that limit.

Stage 3: Excluded: If you are on Probation and do not pass more than 50% of the credits points attempted

in the next or subsequent study period (excluding Summer session) your course status will change to

Excluded. You will be excluded for one (1) year and will no longer be able to enrol at the University of

Wollongong. You are able to appeal this decision within 20 working days of the decision. This is the final

stage.

How can you return to Active? If you are on Referral or Probation and pass more than 50% of the credit

points attempted in the next or subsequent study period, your course status will return to Active.

4.15 ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT

Students at Sydney Business School are required to attend 80% of all classes conducted. There are

positive benefits of attending class regularly as it will give students a better understanding of the relevant

theory and its application, greater clarity on assignment requirements, and advice on exam preparation.

Students, who miss 2 lectures in Wollongong and Sydney, without appropriately approved medical or other

documentation, are in breach of the 80% rule. Students who are enrolled in a Friday/Saturday intensive

subject are in breach of the 80% rule if they miss 1 lecture, without appropriately approved medical or other

documentation. There are penalties for students signing on behalf of another student.

Once it has been confirmed that a student has breached the 80% rule, he/she will be asked by the lecturer to

explain their case. If there are no extenuating circumstances, a letter will be sent to the student to advise

that further breaches of the rule will not be tolerated, in any subject, and will be reported to the Head of

Students. If there are extenuating circumstances, these would be documented and sent to the Head of

Students for consideration.

5.2 APPROPRIATE STUDY LOAD FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

International students are required to complete their course within the timeframe set on their Confirmation

of Enrolment (COE). This means that most International Students must be enrolled in 24 credit points per

Trimester/Session to complete their course in the timeframe set on their current COE.

The timeframe on a student's COE can be altered only under very restricted circumstances, with approval

and evidence provided to the University. These circumstances are compassionate or compelling

circumstances, implementation of a specified intervention strategy, approved reduce study load or if an

approved deferment or suspension of study has been granted.

Please Note: All international students must be enrolled in 24 credit points per Trimester/Session unless

they have an activated Intervention Strategy, Leave of Absence or their application to Reduce Study Load

has been approved. For more information on the above mentioned exceptions, please refer to the

International Student web site - http://www.uow.edu.au/student/international/index.html

5.2.1 APPLICATION TO REDUCE STUDY LOAD

International Students who have an active enrolment status are able to apply to reduce their study load as a

result of compassionate or compelling circumstances. Compassionate or compelling circumstances are

defined as circumstances beyond the control of the student and which have an impact upon the student's

course progress or wellbeing.

Applications can be submitted until the Census Date (last date to withdraw without financial penalty).

If you are on referral or probation it is more appropriate for you to apply for an intervention strategy.

5.2.2 HOW DO I APPLY?

Applications can be made via SOLS by completing the online Application to Reduce Study Load form. This

form is to be used to apply for permission to reduce your study load. You must also download the Academic

Advice part of the form which must be printed and completed in consultation with your Course Director or

the Head of Students.

Any application to reduce a study load must be supported by appropriate documentation and the Academic

Advice form. The documentation required will depend on your personal circumstances and enrolment

request. Applications will not be assessed until all documentation is received. Approval for a reduce study

load is recommended by your Course Director or the Head of Students before it is processed by the

International Student Compliance Team.

Students are not eligible to reduce their study load if they fall into the following categories:

1) An intervention strategy has already been put in place by your faculty;

2) It is more appropriate for a student to apply for Academic Consideration instead;

3) Application is received after the Census Date (last date to withdraw without financial penalty).

5.2.3 GROUNDS FOR APPLICATION

It is up to the professional judgment of the University of Wollongong to determine if your circumstances are

compassionate or compelling.

Compassionate or compelling circumstances, according to the National Code Standard 13 include, but are

not limited to:

• serious illness or injury, where a medical certificate states that the student was unable to attend

classes;

• bereavement of close family members such as parents or grandparents;

when this has impacted on the student’s studies; or

• a traumatic experience which could include:

• involvement in, or witnessing of a serious accident;

• witnessing or being the victim of a serious crime

when this has impacted on the student. (these cases should be supported by

police or psychologists’ reports)

• where the registered provider was unable to offer a pre-requisite unit; or

• inability to begin studying on the course commencement date due to delay in receiving a student

visa.

Applications will be assessed on the information you provide in your application and any supporting

documents.

28


Please note: All applications will be assessed on the information provided on the application form and the

supporting documentation submitted. Applications are not automatically approved and are assessed on

a case by case basis. Completion of the Academic Advice form does not mean permission to reduce

your study load.

For further information please go to: http://www.uow.edu.au/student/international/index.html

5.3 TAKING A BREAK FROM THE UNIVERSITY/DEFERRING THEIR STUDIES

International students, who have completed their first session of study in their current course, can apply to

take leave for up to 12 months by submitting an application for a Leave of Absence. A leave of absence is

where the University temporarily 'pauses' your study for an approved period of time.

5.3.1 CIRCUMSTANCES FOR LEAVE OF ABSENCE

You can take a leave of absence by demonstrating compassionate or compelling circumstances.

Compassionate or Compelling circumstances are defined as circumstances that are beyond the control of a

student and which have an impact upon the student’s course progress or wellbeing. According to the

National Code Standard 13 these could include (but are not limited to):

• serious illness or injury, where a medical certificate states that the student was unable

to attend classes

• bereavement of close family members such as parents or grandparents (where a death

certificate should be provided)

• major political upheaval or natural disaster in the home country requiring emergency

travel and this has impacted on the student’s studies, or

• a traumatic experience, which has impacted the student (these cases should be

supported by police or psychologists’ reports), which could include an involvement in, or

witnessing of an accident, or witnessing or being the victim of crime

• where the registered provider was unable to offer a pre-requisite unit

• inability to begin studying on the course commencement date due to delay in receiving a

student visa

When you are on a leave of absence the University notifies Department Immigration and Border Protection

(DIBP) that you need a Leave of Absence and the circumstances surrounding your leave. In certain

circumstances your student visa will remain valid. However, as in all cases, you should contact DIPB for any

questions relating to your individual student visa.

Please note: The above are only some examples of what may be considered compassionate or compelling

circumstances. Each application for a leave of absence will be assessed individually based on the

information provided and documentary evidence.

Please note: To be eligible to claim these circumstances you will need to provide original documentation

of the circumstances with your application for a Leave of Absence.

5.3.2 HOW DO I APPLY FOR A LEAVE OF ABSENCE?

You can apply for a Leave of Absence by completing the form which can be found on the Current Students –

Forms page under the ‘Take a break from study’ http://www.uow.edu.au/student/forms/UOW008135.html

Once you have submitted form to the faculty, you have 7 days to submit supporting documentation. As all

postgraduate students must have the approval of their Head of Students. Your complete application will be

sent to your Head of Students. Once the approved application and documentation has been received and

provided you have met the criteria, your application will be processed. You will be notified by SOLS and by

letter by post. You will also be issued a new COE reflecting the course end date due to the approved Leave

of Absence application. This will be sent to your UOW email account.

29


5.4 STUDENT VISA INFORMATION

It is your responsibility to ensure that you understand your visa conditions and that you comply with them.

5.4.1 COMPLETE YOUR COURSE WITHIN THE TIMEFRAME SET BY YOUR COE

International students are required to complete their course within the timeframe set on their Confirmation

of Enrolment (COE). This means that most International Students must be enrolled in 24 credit points per

Trimester/Session.

Students that do not follow a full time load and consequently will exceed their timeframe on their COE will

be given warnings via SOLSMail. These students should amend their enrolments in order to complete within

the timeframe of their COE. If you consistently under enrol without permission and ignore warning

messages from the University regarding your enrolment the University may be forced to cancel your

enrolment and report on your COE. This action notifies DIBP and may lead to the cancellation of your

student visa.

There are limited circumstances in which the University may extend the duration of a COE.

• An approved leave of absence

• An approved permission to reduce study load on compassionate or compelling grounds

• An intervention strategy

If your COE will expire before you complete your course, apply for a new COE via SOLS. A new COE will not

automatically be issued to you; you may need to explain why you have not been able to complete your

course within the timeframe of your original COE. For further information on COE, please go to:

http://www.uow.edu.au/student/international/UOW029212.html

5.4.2 MAKE SATISFACTORY COURSE PROGRESS

Trimester/Session for those studying at the Sydney CBD Campus.

Excluded students have 20 working days in which to submit an appeal to Student Central. For further

information please go to: http://www.uow.edu.au/student/international/UOW051901.html#appeals.

Students who are excluded for poor academic progress and who have exhausted the appeal mechanism

without a successful outcome, the student will then be reported to DIBP.

30


If you are having difficulties with your course, you should seek advice from your course coordinator or

contact the Learning Development Centre.

If you are reported to DIBP for breaching this condition you will need to report to the DIBP by contacting 131

881 within 28 days, otherwise your visa may be cancelled.

5.4.3 REMAIN WITH YOUR ORIGINAL PROVIDER FOR THE FIRST 6 MONTHS OF STUDY

Students are required to remain with their original provider for the first 6 months of study on their principal

of fees. This may lead to the cancellation of your student visa.

If you experience difficulties in paying your fees you should speak to Student Central Staff, or staff at Sydney

Business School student services. You should do this before your fees are due.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you continue to satisfy the conditions on your visa.

5.5 WORK RESTRICTIONS ON INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

If you were granted a student visa on or after 26th April 2008 you will have automatically received

permission to work. This applies to both the primary student and any family members travelling with them

on their student visa. As a result, most student visa holders will no longer need to apply separately in

Australia for permission to work.

6.7 COUNSELLING

The University offers a free and confidential counselling service to all enrolled students to assist with

personal, work or study related difficulties. The counselling provided will focus on helping you find a solution

to your problem, dealing specifically with the issues impacting on your studies. The counsellors will not tell

you the answer to your problem, but instead will assist you in assessing your options and developing

strategies for resolving it yourself. The counsellors can assist with a wide range of personal difficulties such

as: family and relationship issues, communication problems, loneliness, lack of confidence, stress, anxiety,

depression, bereavement, grief and adjusting to another culture.

Postgraduate University studies are stressful and at times adverse circumstances may impact negatively on

a student’s studies. If your studies have been, or are likely to be impacted it is best to discuss this with the

Student Support Advisor, Mr Dan Morgan, in the first instance. Dan may suggest a course of action and

possibly make a referral to Counselling if appropriate. If you are currently seeing a University Counsellor

you can discuss this with the Counsellor who may provide Assessments for Special Consideration. Where

possible, the student should bring along any medical, legal or other documentation relating to their

circumstances. You can review the University Policy and Guidelines on Academic Consideration here

6.8.2 GWP900 INTERNSHIP SUBJECT

An informative and intensive subject designed to meet the employment aspirations of international students

to undertake work in Australia. This subject crosses boundaries between theory and practice and will

maximise the students’ potential to access workplace experiences leading to formal post university

employment options. Students will acquire and develop work-based learning skillsets; will critically examine

the discourses and theories of intercultural competence, as well as develop cultural awareness and

business communication skills that are fit-for-purpose regardless of students’ career aspirations. It also

provides an opportunity for students to integrate and apply their university knowledge in an industry context

through an internship work place project.

This subject has been designed to help International Students:

• Identify requirements of employers and businesses in order to participate in recruitment processes;

• Use career management tools to develop and communicate graduate qualities in future job seeking

contexts;

• Apply principles of business communication to communicate and work collaboratively in a team

environment;

• Apply intercultural competence required to operate in the Australian workplace; and

• Apply discipline specific knowledge in a practical workplace setting via an internship or workplace

project.

Places in this subject are limited. GWP900 is a postgraduate elective subject and will be available to

6.8.3 INDUSTRY RELATED PROJECTS

Some of the school’s programs provide an option for students to undertake an industry project. This project

introduces students to an organisation and together with nominated managers and academic support,

provides the opportunity to investigate a real business problem as part of their program of study. The

resulting project is often an important part of a student’s portfolio when applying for the next position in

their career.

6.9 DISABILITY SERVICE

The Disability Liaison Officer (DLO) can provide advice on how particular disabilities affect University study

and information on resources available at the University for assisting students with disabilities. Students

commencing courses are advised to contact the Disability Liaison Officer prior to the beginning of their first

session of study.

In order to make use of the facilities available at the University, students must first register with the

Disability Liaison Officer by providing a recent specialist assessment of their disability. This specialist

assessment should also provide advice to the University on the type of assistance students may require in

order to pursue their studies. This information enables the University to provide appropriate assistance and

make wise use of public funds provided to Universities. Generally, mobility difficulties and medical

conditions require documentation from a medical specialist; learning difficulties require assessment from an

educational psychologist or consultant; psychiatric disabilities require assessment from a psychiatrist or

clinical psychologist. The DLO can advise students on the forms of assessment which are acceptable to the

University. Registered students should advise the DLO if they alter their subject enrolment, take leave of

absence or discontinue their studies.

The Student Support Advisor (SSA) – see section 5.1 above - are able to act as a link between the student,

Disability Services, the Faculty and the appropriate Academics in ensuring the student is supported

through their study.
