It is also suggested that students purchase the following:
- an English desk dictionary, such as the Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary
- an English thesaurus, such as the Concise Oxford Thesaurus
- an A4 or A5 size exercise book (about 48 pages) in which you will be expected to complete various tasks assigned by your lecturer and to submit them as required.
- a folder in which all materials supplied are kept
Students will also need to access the UC Referencing Guide for APA and Harvard styles at http://canberra.libguides.com/referencing
Students should attend all classes. As a guideline students with less than 80% attendance are placing their studies at risk as students with poor attendance will find it difficult to keep up with the workload.
Students claiming special consideration for assessment due to illness must use the approved documentation for medical evidence. This form is available on Moodle and must be signed by their medical practitioner. Doctor's certificates without this form will not be accepted.
