It is the student's responsibility to ensure that they are correctly enrolled in each unit and that the units are correct for their course of study. Students should confirm their unit enrolment details via MyUC before the end of Week 2.
Moderation of final results is practiced to ensure the maintenance and uniformity of consistent standards.
The Unit Convenor reserves the right to vary the lecture and seminar schedule to take timely advantage of an advertising event, field trip opportunity or guest speaker. Notice of such variation will be made through Moodle announcement.
The standard practice of using referencing systems such as Harvard or the American Psychological Association (APA – 5th or 6th edition) Style Manual is preferred.
If there is any doubt on the requirements of any particular assignment or assessment procedure, the onus of clarification rests with the student who should contact the lecturer about the matter. Students have a responsibility to:
- read, understand and respect the rules concerning plagiarism;
- familiarise themselves with the conventions of referencing in their discipline; and avoid all acts, which could be considered plagiarism. Refer to the Academic Skills Centre for more information.
