University life can be tough. On occasion workloads can pile up, deadlines may be due, and the pressure of university life can get on top of you. It can be easy in these circumstances to misunderstand the principles of academic writing or take a shortcut to complete assignments and pass exams. Doing something like this could breach the University’s academic integrity policy and if caught could get you into serious trouble. If you are accused of breaching academic integrity it's advisable you seek advice through the student union. You can get further information in the leaflet below.
