Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is integral to university study and academic life. Staff and students combine to form a community and culture of learning with the core values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility and courage.  These values are mutually reinforcing and form the foundations for the University’s approach.

Academic integrity includes, for example, acknowledging all sources used through citations and referencing, presenting accurate data, declaring where previously submitted work has been re-used, complying with ethical and other obligations, and meeting the standard of behaviour required for all academic endeavour.

From 2019/20, the approach is set out in the University Policy on Academic Integrity (PDF, 232kB) and governed by regulation within the Regulations and Code of Practice for Research Degree Programmes and the Regulations and Code of Practice for Taught Programmes.
