Policy Statement

  1. The University supports a suite of academic undergraduate scholarships to reward excellence at the time of selection and continued excellence during the degree program.
  2. The University has a responsibility to ensure appropriate and early intervention for students holding undergraduate scholarships (‘scholars’) whose academic achievement is not at the appropriate level.
  3. This responsibility is owed primarily, but not solely, to the individual scholars affected; other members of the University community also have an interest in the best possible use of available resources.
  4. Early interventions should be supportive of the individual scholar concerned, and directed towards ensuring the academic achievement at the appropriate level of that scholar. They should recognise the primary responsibility of the scholar for his or her own progress, and should assist the scholar to exercise that responsibility effectively.
  5. Processes for making decisions about whether or not scholars who do not achieve at the appropriate level should be permitted to continue to hold the undergraduate scholarship should be open, fair, resource efficient and timely.
