DEED POLL
Dear Student,
Commencement of the project is subject to you signing and returning the Deed Poll attached to this
letter. You must sign the bottom of the page and will need an independent adult witness to sign next
to your signature.
We ask that you pay particular attention to the following matters:
Policies. You are required to comply with all the University’s policies and rules, which are
available on our website at http://sydney.edu.au/policies
.
Confidentiality. You are required to keep all confidential information of the University and the
industry partner strictly confidential
and must not deal with it in any way that might prejudice its
confidentiality.
Publications. You are not permitted to publish any material arising out of your project unless
you have the written consent of your University supervisor. This is to ensure your compliance
with any confidentiality requirements or other University obligations connected with the project.
Intellectual property. As part of the terms of the project, you will need to licence to the
University your rights in any intellectual property (IP) created by you in the course of the
project. This is required so that such IP can be licensed by the University to the Industry
partner. This is a precondition of your participation.
Use of submitted work for course evaluation and education purposes. Work you submit
through Canvas may be reviewed by University staff for course evaluation and continuous
improvement. Your submitted work may also be used for education purposes, such as
providing students with examples of past work, or for allowing development of student ideas in
future projects.
Under the University’s Intellectual Property Policy 2016, you must be given a reasonable
opportunity to review this letter and the Deed Poll before responding to the offer to undertake the
project. You may choose to access legal advice including through the Student Representative
Council. Please consider the acknowledgments in the Deed carefully and ask your Supervisor or
faculty advisors for more information if required. The University cannot give legal advice, but can
provide you with further information about the relevant Industry partner or instructions about how to
sign.
We wish you all the best with your project.
