Academic honesty

Students can face serious consequences if they are found to have engaged in academic dishonesty. Always check the exam rules for each exam so you are not caught using prohibited materials. Headphones are not allowed in exams.

If you receive an allegation of academic dishonesty, contact us for assistance from our professional caseworkers as soon as possible.

Exams are coming


Exams are just around the corner, and while it is important to be prepared, it is just as important to take breaks, eat regularly, and sleep well. This will help you study better!

Talk to your friends and family if you are feeling worried, and contact the Student Counselling Service if you need support.

Special consideration

If you are unable to sit your exam or your exam has been affected by illness, injury or misadventure, you can apply for special consideration.

You must apply within 3 days of the exam. A late special consideration application will only be approved if you have strong supporting documentation. Contact us if you need assistance.  
Fun Fact
Green bans are industrial actions taken to protect the environment or heritage. The first green bans were conducted in Australia in the 1970s by the NSW Builders Labourers Federation (BLF). In the early 1970s the BLF threatened the University of Sydney with a green ban on urgent building work when the Professorial Board vetoed a proposed women's studies course. The University then allowed the course to be taught.
