Plagiarism, which is passing off someone else’s work as your own. This includes copying word for word another’s work, paraphrasing or using another’s ideas as if they were one’s own, and "borrowing" facts and figures without proper acknowledgement.
Resubmitting your own work, which is when you take an assignment you have already done and resubmit it, or parts of it, for another task without the permission of the Topic Coordinator. If you are repeating a topic and you wish to re-submit work that you have previously submitted you will need seek advice from the Topic Coordinator about originality requirements.
Collusion, which is when two or more students collaborate on an individual assignment in a way that is not authorised by the Topic Coordinator. Examples of collusion include letting someone copy your answers on a test, comparing your essay to one written in a previous year by a different student, lending another student your essay to "give them some ideas", or allowing someone to write or edit your assignment.
Misrepresentation occurs when a student presents false or misleading information about their work, identify, or circumstances. It can include misrepresenting evidence such as changing citation dates, including references to non-existent resources, providing dishonest information about a placement, or falsifying academic or medical records.
Fabrication is when a student invents or alters data, source materials, or results. This includes reporting on an experiment that did not take place, altering data or results from an experiment or paper, or inventing data that is not supported by evidence.
Exam cheating is when a student uses any method to gain an unfair advantage in an exam or test. This includes copying from a fellow student, taking a cheat sheet into an exam without the permission of the Topic Coordinator, or having someone impersonate you for a test or exam.
Contract cheating is paying someone else to do your work and submitting it as your own. It includes purchasing an assignment from an online service, asking someone to write an assignment for you, or downloading an essay from a file-sharing website.
Misusing Artificial Intelligence (AI) Tools includes the use of AI tools such as ChatGPT, Bard, or DALL-E without the permission of your topic coordinator and without appropriate acknowledgement or citations. While these tools can be useful for your study, they must be used appropriately and ethically.
