Good academic conduct

As a student in higher education, you are a member of an academic community. Like all members of this community, you are expected to approach your academic work with integrity and follow good academic practice. This means that you must:

  • Be honest in your use of data, avoiding fabrication and falsification
  • Acknowledge all the sources you use in your work
  • Follow the citation and referencing conventions approved by your school or research institute
  • Never give or receive unauthorised help with academic work

These pages focus on the use of sources in academic writing. They will help you to cite sources correctly in you writing, compile a list of references and avoid plagiarism.
