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.

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 strongly encouraged to attend all lectures and tutorials. If you do not attend class, it is your responsibility to cover any missed work.
Required IT skills
