Academic Integrity is important to you and the University
Academic integrity matters—producing your own work, to the best of your ability means you have earnt your qualification and are prepared for the opportunities and challenges that you will face in the workplace.
The University is committed to promoting academic integrity, educating students about academic integrity and taking action when academic misconduct occurs.
Managing and preventing academic misconduct helps the University to:
- assure the academic reputation of the University and the standards of its awards
- ensures students receive due credit for the work they submit for assessment
- protects the interests of those students who do not cheat
- meet it's reporting and compliance obligations as a Higher Education Provider.
Employers need to be assured that students who are awarded degrees have met the standards and professional requirements for the program of study. A degree is a minimum requirement of entry into many professions. Many professions have specific professional integrity standards, values and codes of conduct. Acting honestly, ethically, respectfully and with responsibility are some of the expectations of employers.
Academic Integrity is an extension of your own personal integrity.
