Special assessment requirements

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 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 encouraged to attend the majority of workshops and make an observable contribution. They are also required to self-assess the level of their engagement as part of this assessment task.
