Academic Integrity

Guide for Students

Academic integrity is the attitude of approaching your academic work honestly, by completing your own original work, attributing and acknowledging your sources when necessary and not relying on dishonest means to gain advantage.
  • Plagiarism and cheating reduces the value of the work you hand in for assessment and the value of your time spent at university.
  • The University must keep records of plagiarism and may be required to include this information in employment or academic references.

Academic integrity is all about maintaining standards: of your own work and of your degree. Don't devalue your own achievement and the work of others by acting dishonestly in your studies.
