The Use of Artificial Intelligence services
The University's position is that artificial intelligence services must not to be used for assessment or assessment preparation by students unless explicitly allowed in the assessment instructions for an assessment task published with the assessment task and/or in the unit outline. That is, an artificial intelligence services may only be used if:
- its use is authorised by the unit convener (or HDR supervisor) as part of a specified assessment task, and
- it is used in the way allowed in the assessment instructions and/or unit outline, and
- its use is appropriately referenced, meaning that students must reference the use of AI in their assessment in the same way as they reference other source material.
The University of Canberra (Student Conduct) Rules determine whether a behaviour is academic misconduct.
Under the Rules, if a student does not follow assessment instructions, then a behaviour may be found to be academic misconduct.
Under the Rules if a student does not appropriately reference a source, then a behaviour may be found to be plagiarism.

Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Lectures, tutorials and workshops sessions are essential learning opportunity in this unit.
As an advanced unit in financial accounting, it is important that students prioritise attendance in class.
There is a strong link between unit success and lecture/tutorial/workshop attendance.
Required IT skills
This unit is likely to involve online meetings in real-time using online platforms. Specific information about the platform(s) will be posted via the Canvas site. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset.
Students are expected to be able to use Microsoft Word and Excel in addition to University systems available over the Internet (e.g. MyUC, Email, E-Reserve, Canvas, Library Catalogue, and Library Databases). Students are encouraged to use Zotero, Endnote or RefWorks for managing references for their research assignment.
