Academic Integrity - what is it?

'The University upholds the principle of academic integrity, whereby appropriate acknowledgement is given to the contributions of others in any work...'

Students, researchers and staff achieve academic integrity through sound academic writing, avoiding plagiarism, and appropriate referencing and citation.
