Ideally, you should lodge your own complaint. Receiving a complaint in your own words helps us to understand the exact nature of your complaint, the impact it has had on you, and your desired outcome.
You may appoint a representative (for example a parent, guardian, or sponsor) to manage the complaint on your behalf. To do so, please make this request at the time of lodging your complaint, making sure you provide your representative’s full name and contact details. Alternatively, you may provide written authority to your Student Complaints Case Manager at any time during the complaint investigation. We will then communicate with you and/or your representative (as per your instructions).
If you are a parent or friend of an RMIT student and wish to lodge a complaint on their behalf, you must provide their written authority to do so. To protect the privacy of our students, the student will be contacted directly to confirm receipt of the complaint, and to be advised, as per the written authority, that we will communicate with their representative in relation to the complaint moving forward.
If you are a parent or friend of an RMIT student and you wish to lodge a complaint in your own right or without the student's knowledge and/or consent, you are considered a 'third party complainant'. You may lodge your complaint by completing the Third Party Complaint Form.
Please see RMIT Complaints for further information about RMIT's complaints processes.
