Academic integrity must be upheld in all university studies, along with good research practice. Students must conduct their work with integrity and honesty to provide an accurate reflection of their skills. All cheating, plagiarism and other academic misconduct is prohibited.
Misconduct means breaching good research practice and academic integrity through dishonesty. A person who cheats in their research or studies violates accepted practices and procedures either intentionally in order to mislead or through carelessness (ignorance or negligence).
Plagiarism means illicitly presenting another’s work, such as a text, graph, program code or image, as one’s own. Self-plagiarism also falls into this category.
