Unit Information Guides
A Unit Information Guide (UIG) is available for every unit you undertake at SCU.
When you enrol into a unit, you will gain access to a Learning Site in MySCU. Inside the Learning Site, you will find the Unit Information Guide. They typically contain the following information:
- Required textbooks, if any, and list of reading extracts
- Learning objectives
- Assessment items and assignment due dates
- Tutorial topics
- Contact details for your unit assessor
- Much, much more
Learning Sites in MySCU are usually available one week before the first day of study.
Textbook requirements can be accessed using the Unit textbook search on The Co-op’s website 2–3 weeks prior to the session commencing. Checking the site prior to this may provide an indication of costs and text requirements, but may not be confirmed or finalised until closer to the start of the study session.
When the teaching period starts you can normally find your Unit Information Guide in MySCU.
You can also view a brief description and topics covered of any SCU unit by visiting the Unit Search tool.
