Academic Honesty and Assessment Obligations for Coursework Student Policy This policy sets out the obligations of students when undertaking assessment tasks, including examinations, particularly the obligation of academic honesty. It is important that you understand what the University deems as academic dishonesty, which may take the form of plagiarism in assignments and cheating in exams.

Academic Credit Arrangements Policy The University acknowledges the need for clear and effective credit arrangements to increase opportunities for students to access education, improve student mobility between sectors and institutions, and increase the pathways into and between qualifications through recognition of prior learning.

Modified Arrangements for Coursework Assessment Policy acknowledges that students who obtain a fail grade in a course may warrant a second chance to demonstrate that they have met the learning outcomes of that course. The policy extends this safety net to students who fail the last course required to complete their academic program.
