Students have an obligation to work independently and apply scholarly academic conventions in examinations and other forms of assessment tasks. Any form of cheating, plagiarism or collusion, or other forms of dishonesty, devalues the quality of student learning and undermines the academic standards of the University. There are serious consequences for students who do not act honestly and with integrity during their studies.
This policy outlines how academic performance is monitored to ensure that students who are at risk of not achieving satisfactory progress receive appropriate learning support and assistance. If a student’s progress remains unsatisfactory, the Torrens University Australia may impose conditions on the student’s continued enrolment or the student may be excluded from continuing their studies in their course.
Core to the University’s philosophy is that all students with the capacity to succeed in tertiary study should have the opportunity to do so, regardless of social or educational disadvantage. The University’s Admissions Policy reflects these aims. Student selection is competitive and based on the principles of academic merit and access and equity. Selection processes are applied fairly and openly, and recognise that formal qualifications are not the only measure of the capacity to succeed.
Assessment is an integral part of the learning and teaching system and an important aspect of maintaining academic standards. Assessments could include written reports, role plays, presentations and exams. This policy also covers Overdue Assessments, Deferral and Extensions, Exam Resit and Assessment Resubmit for Extenuating Circumstances.
This policy defines the responsibilities and requirements for enrolling in Torrens University Australia subjects and courses, including the enrolments process, types of enrolment, changes to enrolment (including taking leave, withdrawing and cancelling subjects or courses).
