What is Academic Integrity?

Academic integrity exists when students do their academic work in an honest and ethical manner, following the conventions and code of practice of their chosen discipline or profession. 

Acts of academic dishonesty include but are not limited to the following:

  • Cheating
  • Plagiarism [i.e. the act of using the creative works of others (e.g. ideas, words, images or sound, etc.) in one’s own work without proper acknowledgement of the source]
  • Unauthorised collaboration or help
  • Fabrication and Falsification
  • Aiding academic dishonesty

The University has established a set of Regulations and Rules on Academic Studies to ensure that academic integrity is upheld. For research students, please click here.
