Welcome. Did you know that an element of being a good student at Southern Cross University (SCU) involves being honest about what is your work, what is influenced by other people's work and what is directly borrowed from someone else's work? Essentially, students at SCU are expected to practise academic integrity.
As a commencing student at SCU we would like to support your understanding of how to effectively practise academic integrity. For this purpose, you are strongly encouraged to complete the short online module, Practising Academic Integrity: An Introduction, by week 4 of the session/ study period. You can access this module via your unit's Blackboard site by clicking on the left menu tab: Avoiding Plagiarism. In the future, SCU will require students to have successfully completed this module to be able to continue with their studies.
Successful completion involves you working through the module, at your own pace, and scoring 90% on the final online quiz. You can attempt the quiz as many times as you like.
Continuing students are also encouraged to complete this online module to check their understanding of practising academic integrity at SCU.
All the best with your future studies at SCU.
This project gives you an opportunity tell us your ideas and feedback on your experience at Southern Cross University to help us understand how we can better support you and ensure that you are well represented as a key part of decision making.
