Your Details

If you are a current Swinburne student, you should use your Swinburne student email address, as the University's official email communication method.

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 area that can help you resolve your issue (e.g. studentHQ, your teaching department, Global Engagement)
  • Search our Ask George FAQs to see if there are instructions available for resolving your issue, or submit an online enquiry
  • Make an appointment with a specialist (e.g. Enrolment Specialist, SwinCounselling support, International Student Adviser, academic staff member, Swinburne Student Life Advocacy Officer).
  • The local resolution process is outlined on the Request a recheck of your mark web page for results and assessment/marking issues.
  • Always keep the records of your attempt at local resolution to support a future complaint submission (if needed). If you haven't attempted local resolution you will be requested to do so before a formal complaint will be considered.

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).
