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.
Students are asked to attend as many classes as they possibly can. There is a direct causal link between class attendance and passing the unit. If you are struggling with regular attendance please contact the Program Coordinator for assistance with attendance flexibility. Students are also asked to use the Canvas site to catch up on any classes they may have missed by watching the allotted videos or lectures and completing the embedded activities.
Required IT skills

The only costs students have is the Student Services and amenities fees.
