Equity and Diversity

Equity and diversity

HETI Higher Education is committed to providing you with the right to work and learn in an environment that is free of harassment and discrimination on the basis of ethnicity, gender, sexual preference, age, disability or political and religious affiliation.

We adhere to the principles of equal opportunity and anti-discrimination as described in the NSW Anti-Discrimination Act (1977). We are committed to fair practices, and to recognising and respecting the social and cultural backgrounds of all staff and students.

If you believe you have been discriminated against or harassed by a member of staff or another student because of your ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, disability, political or religious affiliation you can follow the process outline in the Student Grievance Procedure, which may involve submitting a Grievance Form (available from administrative staff).

We also invite informal feedback by phone, email or the feedback quick link located within myHETI.

Accessibility and equal opportunity

HETI Higher Education is committed to providing you with an equitable and accessible learning environment.

Accessible learning

Supports and adjustments are available to help students achieve academic goals and minimise the impact disabilities, medical or mental health conditions that may otherwise create an unequable learning experience.

Students are encouraged to identify accessibility or learning support needs during their initial application, so we can deliver tailored support from the beginning. A Student Support Officer will personally contact you to guide you through the process.

You may also advise us about an accessibility or learning support need at a later point in your studies.

The type of adjustment is determined on an individual basis with your involvement and will draw on recommendations made in your supporting documentation. Types of adjustments may include:

  • assessment adjustments
  • extensions
  • library services
  • technology consultations
