Type of Feedback



Local resolution is an important step in resolving your matter promptly and locally with the appropriate area of the University. If you have not attempted local resolution you may be directed to do so before your formal complaint is processed. For results, reassessment or special consideration, students must first attempt local resolution within 10 days of receiving results. A formal complaint must then be submitted within 21 working days.

How can you attempt to resolve your matter locally?

  • Contact the relevant Swinburne department that would most likely be able to resolve your issue. E.g. studentHQ, your teaching department, Swinburne International.
  • Check the Ask George FAQs to see if there are instructions already available for resolving your issue or submit a studentHQ online enquiry.
  • Make an appointment with a specialist. E.g. a Course Advice Specialist, a student Counsellor, an International Student Adviser, an academic staff member, a SSAA student advocate.
  • For assessment / reassessment matters, the local resolution process is outlined on the Student Administration Requesting Reassessment web page.
  • Keep records of your attempt at local resolution to support your complaint submission.

Indicate the main topic of your complaint or feedback (if your feedback spans multiple topics, choose the most significant or relevant, then provide further details in your complaint summary).
