Cheating and Plagiarism
If it is found that you have cheated or plagiarised then there are a number of penalties that can be imposed against you, including permanent exclusion from the University.
The University takes instances of cheating, plagiarism, malpractice and fraudulent or fabricated coursework very seriously. Make sure you understand the definitions, and find out how to avoid plagiarism through proper referencing.
Cheating in exams
If you attempt to gain unfair advantage during an exam, or break any of our exam conduct rules this is classed as cheating.
Fraudulent or Fabricated Coursework
If you knowingly submit work that has been fabricated or is untrue, you could face severe penalties.
Malpractice in University assessments
Malpractice refers to offences that, while they do not fall under the strict definitions of cheating or plagiarism, undermine the integrity of the University's academic assessments.
