Academic malpractice

academic malpractice

We define academic malpractice as ‘an attempt to gain an advantage over other students by the use of unfair and/or unacceptable methods’.  It is a serious academic offence that could result in your withdrawal from the University.

You are responsible for reading the information on academic malpractice: Academic malpractice – A Guide for Students October 2018.   Full details can be found in Appendix 8 of the Academic Regulations.

Please attend the malpractice induction sessions to ensure you are familiar with the guidelines. This could prevent you from committing malpractice without realising it.

Ignorance of the University’s guidelines and procedures is not an acceptable defence for malpractice.
