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.
In order to successfully complete this unit, attendance at all lectures is expected. Attendance will be an advantage to students when completing assessment items.

The following additional Discipline specific regulations and procedures are designed to ensure equity for students in the submission, feedback and assessment of projects.
- Submission requirements and protocols
It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the correct version of any given assignment is submitted by the due date and time as indicated in the unit's Canvas site and unit outline.
CD/DVD/USB/emailed assignment submissions will not be accepted. Submissions that do not meet the specified content, format or other requirements may be penalised through a reduction in marks.

Only in exceptional circumstances as stated in UC policy, will applications for an extension be considered. An extension needs to be applied for in writing and in advance of the submission date. The application must specify the length of the extension being sought and provide documentation such as counselling or medical certificates that cover this period. Extensions can only be given for the period stated in the documentation submitted. Counselling certificates are not a guarantee of an extension.
A late submission will attract a penalty of 10% for the first day, then an additional 5% per day for days 2 to 6. A weekend does not count for the purpose of this policy. On the 6th day the student will receive a fail grade.
