Inclusion and engagement
Under normal circumstances, illness (with a medical certificate) is the only valid reason that will be considered for extensions for major written assignments and absences from oral presentations and examinations. In the case of illness, you will be given the opportunity to submit work at a later date or give oral presentations within the term dates, at a time convenient to both you and the lecturer. If you are unable to attend classes due to illness or other serious cause, you will need to obtain from the lecturer the material used, and to familiarise yourself with it before the next class you attend. In addition, you will need to contact the University of Canberra College to fill in a notification of absence form together with supporting evidence (for example, medical certificate). Please do not delay seeking medical advice in the case of illness because the sooner you receive treatment, the sooner you will be able to return to class. You will need to present a medical certificate to UC College as soon as possible to explain your absences from class.
In the event that illness adversely affects your formal assessment you must contact the University of Canberra College within 3 working days of the assessment date. You will be required to complete an Application for Special Consideration form and supply supporting documentation, such as a medical certificate which must state the nature of the illness and that the illness would have affected your performance in the relevant assessment task.
* NOTE: Retrospective approval cannot be included in a student's 80% attendance.
Course participants on Student Visas are required to attend more than 80% of all classes. The College will check student attendance every fortnight and is required to inform the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) of any students who breach the attendance regulation. In cases where a student is unable to provide appropriate documentation and a satisfactory explanation, the Student Visa may be cancelled.
In addition, there is a strong correlation between poor attendance and failure in a unit because students who have a poor attendance record find it difficult to keep up with the work being presented. Since Intercultural Communication includes a continuous assessment component as part of its overall assessment, poor attendance means that students will not be in class to participate and this will make it difficult for a student to fulfil the requirements of this part of the assessment.
Please consult the UCC Student Handbook for further details.
Required IT skills
Students will require access to their own device for all classes e.g. laptop, ipad, etc
