My Learning Online (MyLO)
Access to the MyLO online learning environment unit is required for this unit. The unit has its own
MyLO site.
To log into MyLO and access this unit, go to: http://www.utas.edu.au/mylo. To access the unit,
select BEA309.
For help using MyLO go to http://www.utas.edu.au/mylo.
Technical requirements for MyLO
MyLO can be accessed via Library computers and in computer labs on campus. See:
http://www.utas.edu.au/it/computing-distributed-systems/computer-labs-facilities-and-locations
For further technical information and help, contact the UTAS Service Desk on 6226 1818 or at
http://www.utas.edu.au/service-desk during business hours.
Learning to use MyLO
When you log into MyLO, you will see a unit called Getting Started with MyLO. Enter this unit to
learn more about MyLO, and to practise using its features.
MyLO Expectations
1.
Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct across all modes of
communication, either with staff or with other students. Penalties may be imposed if the Unit
Coordinator believes that, in any instance or mode of communication, your language or
content is inappropriate or offensive. MyLO is a public forum. Due levels of respect,
professionalism and high ethical standards are expected of students at all times.
2.
Submission of assessment tasks via MyLO presumes that students have read, understood and
abide by the requirements relating to academic conduct, and in particular, those requirements
relating to plagiarism. All work submitted electronically is presumed to be “signed-off” by the
student submitting as their own work. Any breach of this requirement will lead to student
misconduct processes.
3.
MyLO is an Internet service for teaching and learning provided by the University. It is
expected that you check your units in MyLO for updates at least once a day.

Using MyLO for BEA309
IMPORTANT!: Before you are provided with access to your unit’s MyLO resources, you must
complete the Student Agreement form. To do this:
1. Access the unit’s MyLO site.
2. Locate the Begin Here folder and click on it to open it. You can find the Begin Here folder by
scrolling down until you see Content Browser OR by clicking on the Content button.
OR
3. Once you have opened the Begin Here folder, click on the Student Agreement file.
OR
4. Read the terms, then check the I agree box. You should now be able to access all available
unit content on MyLO. You only need to do this once in each MyLO unit.
Other important resources on MyLO
Students are expected to regularly check on MyLO for any updates in relation to the unit. Essentially,
MyLO has been incorporated into the delivery of this unit to enhance students’ learning experience,
by providing access to up-to-date course materials, and allowing for online discussion. In addition to
the lecture slides which are uploaded on MyLO on a weekly basis, other unit-related materials such
as supplementary readings and assessment guides can also be accessed on MyLO. Further, students
are also expected to engage in an active discussion about issues related to the unit through the
discussion forums or chat rooms that are available on MyLO: this is particularly helpful for distance
students who may utilise the facilities available on MyLO to contact their fellow distance students
and form groups to complete any group assessment tasks for this unit. In this regard, MyLO should
be treated as the unit's critical platform for learning and communication.
Student Feedback via eVALUate
At the conclusion of each unit, students will be asked to provide online responses to a number of
matters relating to the learning and teaching within that unit. All students are asked to respond
honestly to these questions, as all information received is used to enhance the delivery of future
offerings.

Details of Teaching Arrangements
We have planned this unit to occupy, on average, 10 hours of your time for each of the 13 weeks of
semester (if you are not a fast reader you may need to allocate additional time for independent
study):
1 x Lecture
1 x Workshops
Independent study & assessment tasks
TOTAL:
2 hours
1 hour
7 hours (minimum)
10 hrs per week
Lectures
This unit is based around a weekly 2-hour lecture. The lecture will be held on Friday, starting at 9am.
Please refer to the Lecture Time Table in MyLO. The lectures will be recorded and the recordings will
be made available on MyLO shortly after the lecture has finished.
Lectures will be used to introduce the various topics that we will cover in the unit. You should bring
the relevant materials to each lecture. At a minimum, this includes a calculator, note-taking
materials, and the lecture case study problems. Lecture notes will be posted at least one week in
advance and available for you to download and print from MyLO. Lecture slides are provided as a
structure for your note-taking only – they are not a substitute for reading and completing other set
materials. The unit coordinator reserves the right to change, by deleting or adding information, to
improve lecture slides in advance of lectures.
Distance students are strongly encouraged to go through all the recorded lecture sessions, available
on MyLO.
Workshops
General Information:
Each week ALL students are expected to attend a workshop. The workshop is designed to go
through the weekly workshop questions. These questions will be listed at the end of each week’s
lecture. For further details on workshop questions and submission, please see the section on
assessment.
Face-to-face Students:
Workshops start in the second week of semester and are of 50 minutes duration. Students must
access MyLO in the first week of semester to select a workshop time. To select a workshop, simply
click the link on the unit’s MyLO homepage and follow the instructions. You will only be able to sign
in once using your own individual university login, so make your selection carefully.
If you have recently enrolled and do not have access to MyLO, please contact the unit coordinator by
email to allow you access to ‘sign up’. If you miss out on getting into your preferred workshop, you
must select the next best option. If your choices are limited due to other commitments, then you
must be ready to sign in as soon as the site opens.
If you need to change your workshop time, and there are no places at your preferred time, it will be
your responsibility to find another student who agrees to swap. The best way to do this is via the
MyLO Discussion Board. All changes MUST be approved by the lecturer and completed before the
end of week 4.

In the workshops you will need a copy of your submitted answers to the workshop questions. The
workshop coordinator will work through the answers with you. You are encouraged to ask questions
and clarify any issues that may arise.
Distance Students:
A pre-recorded workshop will be made available on MyLO. You are expected to listen to the
recording with a copy of your answers to the workshop questions. These questions should have
been submitted previously (for further details on workshop questions and submission please see the
section on assessment). You will then be able to work through and compare your answers with the
information provided in the workshop. Students who have further questions on the materials, or are
still having difficulties, are more than welcome to email your lecturer for assistance.

Submission of Assessment Items
Lodging Assessment Items
Assignments must be submitted electronically through the relevant assignment drop box in MyLO.
Students must ensure that their name, student ID, unit code, tutorial time and tutor’s name (if
applicable) are clearly marked on the first page. If this information is missing, the assignment will
not be accepted and, therefore, will not be marked.
Where relevant, Unit Coordinators may also request students submit a paper version of their
assignments. Students will be advised by the Unit Coordinator of the appropriate process relevant
to each campus (Hobart, Launceston or Cradle Coast).
Please remember that you are responsible for lodging your assessment items on or before the due
date and time. We suggest you keep a copy. Even in ‘perfect’ systems, items sometimes go astray.
Late Assessment and Extension Policy
In this Policy:
1.
2.
3.
4.
(a) ‘day’ or ‘days’ includes all calendar days, including weekends and public holidays;
(b) ‘late’ means after the due date and time; and
(c) ‘assessment items’ includes all internal non-examination based forms of assessment
This Policy applies to all students enrolled in TSBE Units at whatever Campus or geographical
location.
Students are expected to submit assessment items on or before the due date and time specified
in the relevant Unit Outline. The onus is on the student to prove the date and time of
submission.
Students who have a medical condition or special circumstances may apply for an extension.
Requests for extensions should, where possible, be made in writing to the Unit Coordinator on
or before the due date. Students will need to provide independent supporting documentation
to substantiate their claims.
BEA309, International Finance

Late submission of assessment items will incur a penalty of 10% of the total marks possible for
that piece of assessment for each day the assessment item is late unless an extension had been
granted on or before the relevant due date.
Assessment items submitted more than five (5) days late will not be accepted.
Academic staff do NOT have the discretion to waive a late penalty, subject to clause 4 above.
Academic Referencing and Style Guide
Before starting their assignments, students are advised to familiarise themselves with the following
electronic resources.
The first is the Harvard Referencing System Style Guide, which can be accessed from the UTAS
library: http://utas.libguides.com/content.php?pid=27520&sid=199808. The Harvard style is the
appropriate referencing style for this unit and the guide provides information on presentation of
assignments, including referencing styles. In your written work you will need to support your ideas
by referring to scholarly literature, works of art and/or inventions. It is important that you
understand how to correctly refer to the work of others and maintain academic integrity.
Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes academic dishonesty
(plagiarism), a matter considered by the University of Tasmania as a serious offence.
The second is the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics’ Writing Assignments: A Guide,
which can be accessed at: http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources ..
This guide provides students with useful information about the structure and style of assignments in
the TSBE.

Review of Assessment and Results
Review of Internal Assessment
It is expected that students will adhere to the following policy for a review of any piece of
continuous/internal assessment. The term continuous/internal assessment includes any assessment
task undertaken across the teaching phase of any unit (such as an assignment, a tutorial
presentation, and online discussion, and the like), as well as any capstone assignment or take-home
exam.
Within five (5) days of release of the assessment result a student may request a meeting with the
assessor for the purpose of an informal review of the result (in accordance with Academic
Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/academic-governance/academicsenate/academic-senate-rules . During the meeting, the student should be prepared to discuss
specifically the marks for the section(s) of the marking criteria they are disputing and why they
consider their mark(s) is/are incorrect. The assessor will provide a response to the request for
review within five (5) days of the meeting.
If the student is dissatisfied with the response they may request a formal review of internal
assessment by the Head of School, with the request being lodged within five (5) days of the informal
review being completed. A Review of Internal Assessment Form is available at the following link:
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/forms. The form must be
submitted to the TSBE Office.
Review of Final Exam/Result
In units with an invigilated exam students may request a review of their final exam result. You may
request to see your exam script after results have been released by completing the Access to Exam
Script Form, which is available from the TSBE Office, or at the following link –
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/forms. Your unit coordinator
will then contact you by email within five (5) working days of receipt of this form to go through your
exam script.
Should you require a review of your final result a formal request must be made only after
completing the review of exam script process list above. To comply with UTAS policy, this request
must be made within ten (10) days from the release of the final results (in accordance with
Academic Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/academic-governance/academicsenate/academic-senate-rules . You will need to complete an Application for Review of Assessment
Form, which can be accessed from http://www.utas.edu.au/exams/exam-and-results-forms. Note
that if you have passed the unit you will be required to pay $50 for this review.
The TSBE reserves the right to refuse a student request to review final examination scripts should
this process not be followed.

Further Support and Assistance
If you are experiencing difficulties with your studies or assessment items, have personal or lifeplanning issues, disability or illness that may affect your study, then you are advised to raise these
with your lecturer or tutor in the first instance.
If you do not feel comfortable contacting one of these people, or you have had discussions with
them and are not satisfied, then you are encouraged to contact:
ACADEMIC DIRECTOR – UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS
Name: Mr David Kronenberg
Room: 301, Centenary Building, Sandy Bay
Email: [email protected]
Students are also encouraged to contact their Undergraduate Student Adviser who will be able to
help in identifying the issues that need to be addressed, give general advice, assist by liaising with
academic staff, as well as referring students to any relevant University-wide support services. Please

Academic Misconduct and Plagiarism
Academic misconduct includes cheating, plagiarism, allowing another student to copy work for an
assignment or an examination, and any other conduct by which a student:
(a) seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement
to which they or that other person are not entitled; or
(b) improperly disadvantages any other student.
Students engaging in any form of academic misconduct may be dealt with under the Ordinance of
Student Discipline. This can include imposition of penalties that range from a deduction/cancellation
of marks to exclusion from a unit or the University. Details of penalties that can be imposed are
available in the Ordinance of Student Discipline – Part 3 Academic Misconduct, see
http://www.utas.edu.au/university-council/university-governance/ordinances.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. It is taking and using someone else’s thoughts, writings or
inventions and representing them as your own, for example:
•
•
•
using an author’s words without putting them in quotation marks and citing the source;
using an author’s ideas without proper acknowledgment and citation; or
copying another student’s work.
It also means using one’s own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
If you have any doubts about how to refer to the work of others in your assignments, please
consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing guidelines, and the academic integrity
resources on the web at http://www.utas.edu.au/academic-integrity/The intentional copying of
someone else’s work as one’s own is a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from
