Health Day
This week, we are hosting Health Day in Mallet Street on Tuesday 16 April 2019 from 11am to 2pm. In week 9, there will be a second Health Day in Cumberland on Tuesday 30 April 2019 from 11am to 2pm. We hope all students can come and hear from SRC and SUPRA caseworkers at the SRC, University student support services, NGOs and local organisations.

Welfare Week
Our next big initiative is WELFARE WEEK, which will be happening on week 3 of semester 2. It will engage students with events on Eastern Avenue, with students from all campuses welcome to attend. The purpose of this would be to showcase all the services provided by the SRC, USU and University, and local community organisations whether it be financial, personal health, student housing, academic etc.

Know your Student Rights – Appealing a Mark
You can appeal an ‘academic decision’ within 15 working days.

The first stage is an informal appeal. Attend the assessment review session, look at model answers or ask your UOS coordinator for the breakdown of your final mark and a marking rubric. Get an understanding of why you received that mark, and know exactly which section you would like to appeal.

If you’re not successful with that appeal, and you believe there was a breach in policy in the way your work or your appeal was assessed you can go to the second stage and make a formal appeal to the faculty. You have 20 working days from your UOS coordinator’s decision to submit this to your faculty. Please note that you cannot make an appeal at this stage on the basis of academic opinion. There has to be a breach of policy or procedure. Go on https://bit.ly/2W8iSPw to see how to appeal for your faculty as some have specific forms or emails.

If you need any help, seek advice from a SRC caseworker. They are welcoming, free and can provide confidential advice.
