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.
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.
