Academic Integrity at VU: Concepts in academic integrity

The Academic Integrity Modules focus on building positive practices and skills when it comes to presenting your assessment work, but academic integrity also includes the choices you make while a student at Victoria University

Understanding the concepts of cheating, plagiarism, theft, falsifying records, and contract cheating will enable you to make positive decisions regarding your study behaviours.

Academic Integrity vs. Academic Dishonesty

Watch these students talk about academic integrity as "a commitment to honesty, genuine wok and effort in an academic setting" and the categories of dishonesty students should avoid: copying, cheating, plagiarism, theft, falsifying records.
