Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is a fundamental principle in universities and you must learn how to integrate the work of experts into your work and apply the correct academic referencing style for each module.

You must show the source of all the ideas and information used in your assessment items, and must not submit someone else’s work as your own. This is plagiarism and the penalties at university can be severe. Academic staff use electronic tools to detect plagiarism in submitted assessments.

The Learning Centre and the Library offer online modules and workshops about academic writing and referencing.
