UNSW is extremely concerned about your progress and believes that a break in your studies is required in order to deal with the issues and problems that are affecting your academic progress.
What happens next?
Following your return from Suspension:
- If you enrol in the next term and pass more than 50% of your attempted load, your academic standing will become Probation.
- If you enrol in the next term and pass 50% or less of your attempted load, your academic standing will become Exclusion.
- If you enrol in more than 6 units of credit in the next term and do not pass any of the attempted load, your academic standing will become Exclusion.
Please be aware that poor academic performance following a Suspension period will result in your academic standing moving to Exclusion.
Can I study a different program if suspended?
No, academic standing is determined at the career level, i.e., undergraduate or postgraduate, rather than at the program level. As a result, if you are suspended from one program you cannot apply to study another program during the period of suspension.
Do you want to appeal?
Suspension means that you are not permitted to re-enrol for at least one academic year, but you have an automatic right of re-admission to the same program. However, if after the period of suspension, you wish to undertake a program other than the one you were enrolled in, you will have to re-apply for admission in the usual manner. See Admissions information.
