Assessment

At the start of each session, your lecturers will provide you with information about the assessment for each course you are studying. This may include mid-session tests, quizzes, assignments, laboratory reports, talks and end-of-session exams.

Timetables for quizzes and mid-session tests are given at the start of each session. Timetables for end of session exams are available on myUNSW towards the end of each session.

On some occasions, sickness, misadventure, or other circumstances beyond your control may prevent you from completing a course requirement or attending or submitting assessable work for a course. Students can apply for Special Consideration for that piece of assessment. The university has procedures for this, which students should follow. Note that requests for special consideration must have supporting documentation and should be submitted within three days of the missed or affected piece of work.

Students who have a health condition, learning disability or have personal circumstances that have an impact on your studies should see UNSW’s Student Equity and Disability Unit  after enrolling. SEADU advisors can help to arrange services and educational adjustments for you.

The university takes the issue of academic honesty very seriously, and students should familiarise themselves with the definitions of plagiarism, and learn how their work should be referenced. The Learning Centre can provide the information you need.
