Accessibility and Inclusion
The Student Accessibility and Inclusion (SAI) team offers personalised assistance for students living with a disability who are studying at UOW. We use reasonable adjustments, provided through Access Plans, to enable students with disability to participate in education on the same basis as students without disability.
Refer to each subjects' moodle site for details on assessment requirements and submission.
Student Grievance Process
For information about dealing with a grievance concerning assessable work or any other type of decision or action of a staff member, see the University’s policy for dealing with student grievances. You can also contact a Student Support Advisor (SSA) via firstname.lastname@example.org.

Academic Consideration is intended to help minimise the impact of compassionate, compelling 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 as stipulated in the Subject Outline; or which affects Academic Progress in a subject relevant to their course of study.
