Policies are statements of the principles which govern decision-making.

Procedures are the functional steps used to implement policies.

Principles in this context are to be understood as being both broad and detailed.

The operation of the University is governed by a range of Commonwealth and State legislation and by the University's statutes, by-laws, regulations, rules and policies.

As a student, you should be aware of these, as they affect many aspects of your experiences at the University.

A Charter of Student Rights and Responsibilities details your rights and what is expected of you at UWA. Make yourself aware of and comply with the relevant statutes, regulations, rules and policies. You will be required to sign an on-line declaration agreeing to abide by these.

Other important sources of information are the University Handbook and Legislation and other documents
