Information to assist in resolution of grievances

The Academic and Non-Academic Grievances Policy on the AIB Policies webpage provides details of how grievances are handled at AIB.

In essence the policy states that if a person has a grievance with AIB they are encouraged to resolve it informally with Student Support. If it cannot be resolved informally then the person may submit a formal grievance using the appropriate form which the Academic Director (or nominee) will respond to. If the person is unsatisfied with the response they may make an internal appeal with new details and documentary evidence and the Appeals Committee will respond. If the person is unsatisfied with the response they may make an external appeal. Students can at any time bring along a support person and naturally they always have the right to seek legal advice. Note, grievance processes in relation to assessment or subject grades are managed as part of the re-marking process in the Assessment Policy and Procedures.

Information to assist international students studying in Australia
