The University expects that all students (undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research postgraduate students) will undertake their studies with integrity and will submit assessments that have been prepared by themselves. To do otherwise, to act dishonestly and cheat in an assessment, is classed as academic misconduct and will incur penalties.

These web pages and the associated resource, ‘Academic Integrity: A Guide for Students’  have been developed to explain the meaning of academic misconduct, how you can avoid it and what the penalties are should you act dishonestly. 

All students are strongly encouraged to familiarise themselves with the guidance on academic integrity provided by the University and how to avoid academic misconduct issues in their coursework and assessments.
