Plagiarism and Academic Misconduct


Academic misconduct, broadly speaking, is any action which gains, attempts to gain, or assists others in gaining or attempting to gain unfair academic advantage.  It includes plagiarism, collusion, contract cheating, and fabrication of data as well as the posession of unauthorised materials during an examination.  Every current and former student of the University is expected to understand and abide by rules of behaviour which specifically prohibit academic misconduct.  Below you can find links to further information about academic misconduct.
