The contribution of each participant in the course is an important part of the learning process. As such, we require attendees to have the appropriate level of knowledge and experience to contribute to the discussions and case studies that form part of the learning process. We also select participants from a range of backgrounds, industries and organisations to ensure diversity in the group. Your application to participate in the course may be assessed, dependent upon course requirements, based on your work life, and industry experience, including a limit on the number of participants from any one organisation.

Academic integrity and plagiarism
Academic integrity is a core value of The University of Queensland, whereby high standards of academic behaviour are expected of students. All course attendees have a responsibility to maintain the highest standards of academic integrity in their work and a failure to comply with such standards may result in penalties being applied by the University. Attendees must not cheat in examinations or other forms of assessment and must ensure that they do not plagiarise the work of others (either unintentionally or intentionally). More information on what constitutes plagiarism and how it can be avoided is located at: www.uq.edu.au/myadvisor/academic-integrity-and-plagiarism. UQ’s policy on student misconduct may be found at http://ppl.app.uq.edu.au/content/3.60.04-student-integrity-and-misconduct.
While this policy applies to enrolled students rather than those undertaking continuing professional development (CPD) studies, the same principles of natural justice will be applied when considering possible misconduct by CPD participants. By registering for this course you agree to uphold the University’s high standards of academic integrity and you acknowledge that your failure to do so may lead to the imposition of penalties, for example, the cancellation of your course participation with no refund being payable.
The information on this form is collected for the primary purpose of registering your attendance at a course offered through the QTC Education Program, coordinated by UQ Business School Executive Education.

UQ Business School Executive Education may also disclose information on this form to a 3rd party to facilitate University rankings and accreditation. Finally, your information may be provided to 3rd party contractors that are performing services on our behalf such as (but not limited to) contracted facilitators, mailing houses, customer satisfaction and market research providers.
