Student responsibilities

Students share the responsibility for the quality of the teaching and learning experience, including their interaction with fellow students.

Student responsibilities

Students have a responsibility to:

  • collaborate with other students during the learning process
  • actively participate in discussions and debate
  • respect the viewpoints of others
  • develop a capacity for reflection, open-mindedness and reception to new ideas
  • develop skills which move them towards academic independence in the pursuit of life-long learning
  • demonstrate academic honesty and observe academic obligations, particularly with respect to authorship of ideas
  • provide feedback to enable Holmesglen to effectively consider and improve teaching and administrative processes.
  • take responsibility for their own learning
  • consult with the course leader early if they are having difficulties with a course, subject or assessment.


Holmesglen recognises the access and equity rights of students and staff and expects all students within the Holmesglen community to also recognise these rights and abide by the regulations associated with these rights.

Students have a responsibility to:

  • Treat staff and fellow students with courtesy, consideration and respect at all times.
