Academic integrity reflects a shared set of principles which include honesty, trust, diligence, fairness and respect and is about maintaining the integrity of a student’s work and their award. Academic integrity is based on the ethos that how you learn is as important as what you learn.
It is academic misconduct to commit any act whereby a person may attempt to obtain for himself/herself, or for another person, an unpermitted advantage. This shall apply whether candidates act alone or in conjunction with another/others.
