Collection of student information
As an educational institution UNSW collects and holds personal information relating to you and your application, enrolment, academic progression and graduation, and the provision of student services to you.
Your information may be held in paper and electronic files. We take all reasonable steps to ensure that the information we collect about you is stored securely. We are required by law to retain records for certain periods depending on the type of record. We have appropriate systems and policies in place to protect your information from loss, unauthorised access and misuse.
We primarily collect information directly from you. Where you have applied for admission through an agent, that agent may have provided information on your behalf. Audit trails may also be maintained of any enrolment transactions you submit through UNSW's web-based student system, myUNSW.
If you do not wish for us to collect certain information about you, tell us. We will discuss with you any consequences this may have for your application, enrolment, academic progression or graduation, or the provision of student services to you.
If you provide untrue, misleading or incomplete information to UNSW, this may have consequences for your application, enrolment, academic progression or graduation, or for the provision of student services to you.
