This page links you to a wide range of information we think you need to know, and to resources that will help you to make the most of your studies within the Linguistics Department of Macquarie University:

There are a number of important policies you need to be familiar with relating to plagiarism, and HDR Supervision for Research Students. Plagiarism is viewed very strictly within the Department and non-compliance with these policies can result in serious penalties.

The HDR Supervision Policy is in place to ensure that a candidate maintains satisfactory progress, that appropriate advice on the content and form of the thesis is offered; and that work towards the thesis is subject to regular and constructive critical review. 

If you are not quite sure where to go for the information you need, have a look at the Academic and Administrative Advice page where you will find a contact list of people who will be able to assist you. The academic and administrative advisers are experienced in assisting students and will offer friendly information and advice. If they can't answer your question they will point you in the right direction.

There are many services and resources - both on campus and online - designed to assist students. The student resources page has details of studying and learning resources, pastoral care and support services; and further sources of information and advice.
