Student grievances

Informal resolution

It is expected that in the first instance, students of the faculty will attempt to resolve a complaint informally with the staff member concerned.

If the complaint is not resolved informally or it is one of bias on the part of the staff member concerned, the student may direct the complaint to the next appropriate level.

To discuss issues relating to your academic studies, students are invited to speak with their relevant student adviser.

Formal resolution

If you have followed the informal resolution process and are not satisfied with the outcome, a written request for resolution of the matter may be lodged with the Faculty Grievance Officer.

To lodge a formal grievance you must complete the Grievance Lodgement Form and email it to the Faculty Grievance Officer at education-grievance@monash.edu.
