Academic Integrity and Plagiarism

Hey there ..

Yes you….

Are you ready for your upcoming assessments and the examination period?

Either way, it is important that you make yourself aware of the concept of academic integrity so that you do not unintentionally fall foul of this. This includes undertaking assessments honestly, in a responsible manner, respecting others’ ideas and familiarising yourself with the online assessment rules and guidance.
