This procedure promotes good academic conduct.
It is the means by which the University investigates alleged assessment irregularities and applies sanctions.
The procedure will apply to any student who is alleged to have breached the University’s code of conduct by one of the following:
Excepting where there is a reported assessment irregularity within the examination room, reports of infringement of the University’s code of conduct should be submitted, in the first instance to the relevant chair of the Board of Examiners.
If you are accused of an offence you will normally be interviewed - you can be accompanied to the interview. You will normally be asked to make a written statement. It is only after this that decisions are taken.
Impartial advice on the assessment irregularity procedures may be sought from Student Progress Service (email@example.com). Assistance for students who are the subject of the procedure may be sought from the appropriate Officers of the Students’ Union, the Student Advice Centre (Students’ Union – www.unionsociety.co.uk/sac) or from a Personal Tutor.
