ACADEMIC MATTERS (including academic integrity)
The University will be closed for the same period as the SRC. This means that any deadlines they give you will not include the close down period. Email your specific enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to you as soon as we can, which will be either Thursday 7th January or Friday 8th January, 2021. Check these leaflets as well for advice on your matter: srcusyd.net.au/src-help/.
For academic integrity allegations draft a response based on the SRC’s leaflet [srcusyd.net.au/src-help/academic-issues/plagiarism], then send this draft as a word document to email@example.com. A caseworker will respond with suggested changes for you to consider on either Thursday 7th January or Friday 8th January, 2021.
