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.
Attendance to the practical lab session(s) is compulsory. As this unit forms part of an accredited degree, attendance to the prac session(s) is an accreditation requirement.
Required IT skills
All students must have access to a computer that allows them to access email messages on a regular basis and permits access to the internet to complete ALL online assignments. It is expected that all students have the required UC IT entry skills to complete this unit. Computers are available on campus if needed. The students will be required to bring their laptops to the Physiology of Exercise test completed online BUT ON CAMPUS.
The main costs associated with this unit are aquiring the required textbook and the printing of the laboratory manual.
Work placement, internships or practicums

IMPORTANT *** Email protocol
All emails must be sent from your student email account , otherwise anti-spam filters may prevent it from being delivered to your lecturer.
When using email to communicate with lecturers or tutors, you should always make sure that your message contains the following:
A subject that contains the unit code, and clearly describes the nature of your query or request.
Your lecturers receive many emails a day, and may also teach more than one unit, so if your email does not contain the unit code; it is not possible to place your message in context. If the subject does not indicate the nature of the message, it may well remain unanswered.
Change the default setting on your email program to include previous messages in replies, and make sure that previous messages are included in an ongoing exchange. Your lecturer deals with many students. Having a copy of the previous exchanges included in your message will expedite a response. You should still make sure that the subject indicates what the email is about.
Address your lecturer appropriately by name.
State your question or request clearly and concisely.
Insert a signature at the end of your email that contains:
your name in full as it appears in Callista
your student number
Your lecturer will inform you if there are additional requirements for communicating by email. While lecturers cannot be available online all day, in normal circumstance your lecturer will reply within 3 working days.
