Student Support

Special consideration

Special consideration is intended to assist you in dealing with unexpected, short-term setbacks. You may be eligible for special consideration if circumstances beyond your control prevent you from undertaking or completing an assessment task at the scheduled time. Further information about Special Consideration eligibility and how to lodge an application is available in the Special Consideration Guidelines. If you are unsure of what to do please contact the Faculty of Health by phone: 9251 7777 or by emailing mailto:healthsc@deakin.edu.au.

Re-admission after exclusion

The following form can be used to apply for re-admission following course exclusion. This form is not to be used by students whose enrolment was terminated for non-payment of fees, voluntary withdrawal from studies or allowing enrolment to lapse.

Review of result

The Faculty Committee will normally only approve an application for a review where the student provides evidence that their work was not marked in accordance with the marking criteria or that there was a misapplication of other relevant University policies or procedures.

Please note the Review of Result application cannot grant late special consideration and is not to be used for this process.

Final unit request

Pass Conceded (PC) and Supplementary Assessment processes – under the University's 'Final Unit to Complete' provision – are available only to students who are one credit point short of completing their degree and have a failed unit that meets the requirements for a Pass Conceded or Supplementary Assessment.

Mentor Program

Peer Mentoring programs are offered to students enrolled in courses in the Faculty of Health across all campuses. These programs aim to provide support for international and domestic students in their transition into university life. Each Peer Mentor group comprises: a Peer Mentor (second or third year student typically) and five or six mentees (first year students).
