Academic Offences - Guidance for Schools

The Procedures for Dealing with Academic Offences should be applied when considering an allegation of academic offences by undergraduate or postgraduate students. They also apply in cases of an allegation of plagiarism or duplication in an unpublished work submitted by assessment by a postgraduate research student.

Any other allegation of academic misconduct by a postgraduate research student will be dealt with under the Regulations Governing an Allegation and Investigation of Misconduct in Research.  

This Guidance should be read in conjunction with the Procedures for Dealing with Academic Offences. Where there is any doubt, the Procedures take precedence over this guidance.
