Academic Integrity & Referencing
Guidance on avoiding academic misconduct
The University expects that all students undertake their studies with academic integrity and submit assessments for grading that have been prepared by themselves.
This resource is designed to help you avoid the pitfalls of plagiarism, AI tools, collusion, and contract cheating, enabling you to prepare high-quality academic assessments, which are appropriately referenced and acknowledge the work of others.
There are short explainers about potential pitfalls on the video carousel, and many useful resources from the Library and Student Learning Service can be found in the links section.
Remember that the way in which you present your citations and references will depend on the discipline in which you are studying - if in doubt speak with your lecturer or tutor.
