Indicative Assessment

Graduate students may attend joint classes with undergraduates but can expect more rigorous assessment and additional assignment work, tailored to their interests.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
