Academic Misconduct

In order to safeguard our academic standards and the integrity of our awards the University has procedures in place for dealing with suspected academic misconduct.  The procedure details types of academic misconduct, such as cheating in an examination, plagiarism, collusion and fabrication, how suspected offences are investigated and the penalties that can be imposed.  The procedure also details students’ rights of appeal in cases relating to academic misconduct.
