The UTS Rules, made by Council and in accordance with clause 29(2) of the UTS Act, have the same force and standing as a by-law. The Rules detail the mandatory functions, actions, responsibilities and obligations for the UTS community.
UTS Rules apply to all students, staff, contractors and visitors to the university.
The UTS Rules are divided into Student Rules and General Rules.
The Student Rules cover a suite of mandatory requirements for academic teaching, learning and research-related activities. They cover student responsibilities, all processes from admissions through coursework and research requirements, to exams, assessments and graduations. The Rules also include details of processes for student misconduct and appeals.
The General Rules cover requirements for Council membership, the roles and responsibilities of Academic Board and faculty boards, and the university’s election processes.
