Good scientific and academic practice is an essential requirement in all university studies. Credits must be earned honestly, with the student accurately demonstrating his or her knowledge. All types of cheating and plagiarism are forbidden.
Cheating refers to dishonest conduct that goes against good scientific and academic practice. A person who engages in cheating acts contrary to the generally accepted scientific and academic practices either intentionally, for the purpose of deception or through negligence (due to ignorance or indifference).
Plagiarism refers to the unauthorised use of someone else’s work (text, chart, software code, picture, etc.) as your own. In addition to the unauthorised use of someone else’s work and presenting it as your own, plagiarism can also take the form of self-plagiarism.
