Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is the ethical basis upon which academic work is produced. It comprises important values that shape the work of the University in teaching, research and engagement. These are:

  1. Respect for the participatory nature of learning and the work and perspective of others.
  2. Honesty, which involves acknowledging the work and ideas of others.
  3. Fairness, through realistic assessment expectations and clear standards that are applied consistently.
  4. Responsibility, which highlights that every person at the University has a duty to maintain academic integrity.
