Required IT skills
Students are assumed to have basic IT skills such as word processing, use of e-mail and be able to access subject information and research databases.
Please note it is the responsibility of the student to communicate via email with the Unit Convenor through the UC student email address only. This eliminates the likelihood of external emails being blocked by the University IT filters and not reaching the recipient. All communications from the Unit Convenor will be sent to your student email address, so you are required to check this on a regular basis.
