Student rights and responsibilities

As a Curtin University student, you are part of the Curtin community and as such, you have rights and responsibilities.

Some relate to your work as a student, such as academic integrity and copyright. Others relate to your use of resources and the way you behave around other students.

The online resource Conduct at Curtin: A guide for students provides an overview of Curtin’s values and the standards of appropriate behaviour expected of all students and staff.

The information below provides a summary of your rights and responsibilities.

Academic integrity

Academic integrity is about honesty and responsibility and is fundamental to Curtin’s expectations of you.


Students can seek to have a decision reviewed if they feel they are unfair or were made without their full knowledge.

Student Charter

The Student Charter sets out the expectations and responsibilities of students.
