It is University policy that Harvard (AGPS) or APA referencing styles be used in all courses, with the exception of the Law School in the Faculty of Business and Law which uses AGLC.

Support for students in the use of these systems is provided through the University's Library. The Library is the recognised authority on referencing at the university, and its website includes Referencing Guides. Staff are encouraged to direct students to this site so that students can build knowledge and familiarity through consistency of process.

If academic staff require another style to be used they will need to provide assistance to their students so that students can develop knowledge and understanding of that particular system.


Information to assist in following the basic principles of good academic practice is available for:
