Please read SUPRA’s 2016 The Postgraduate Survival Guide. Pages 52-55 contain valuable information about academic appeals that you should read before you consult a SAAO.
Note that coursework students have 15 working days to commence appeals and that does not include the University closure from close of business 22 December 2017 to 8 January 2018 inclusive. For most that means your appeals are not due until well into January.
Once you have looked at this and drafted your letter, our SAAO service will be able to give feedback and advice. Follow this link and scroll down the page to find more information on how to contact our SAAO service.
If you do visit our SAAO drop-in session or make an appointment, please bring with you any documents or letters related to your enquiry, including:
- a draft of your appeal
- a copy of the relevant assessment
- the unit of study outline or placement manuals if relevant
- a copy of the marking sheet/s where relevant
- any relevant or additional supporting documents, including any email correspondence with the University
If you only have electronic copies of these documents please email them to us ahead of your appointment so that we have time to print them out for your caseworker.
