Sample email policy for module outlines

Making contact with lecturers, team members, and individuals to ask about their work, demands an appropriate, respectful approach.

Understanding and developing your business communication skills is part of your professional formation.

While email can be an informal medium, it is always appropriate to use professional norms.

A well constructed email should include:

  • A formal salutation
  • Identification of your course, class time, student number (and group number/name where relevant).
  • A clear and reasonable message, and a courteous tone. (i.e. ‘Hey!’ or text language is not acceptable).
  • Please make sure the email subject line offers a clear indication of the nature of the email.
  • Please also respect that emails will be responded to as soon as reasonably possible and that this will generally be during office hours.
